Yea Wetlands Discovery Centre – Climate Talk, May 27, 2022
2030Yea is a group of volunteers from Yea and surrounds dedicated to the goal of the township of Yea totally operating on renewable energy by 2030.
Dear friends of 2030Yea and Yea Community Planning participants,
Thanks to a grant from DELWP Hume, Yea Wetlands Discovery Centre and 2030Yea: Community Energy are looking forward to presenting the third and final community talk at the Yea Wetlands Discovery Centre on Friday, May 27th.
Glen Morris and Lucinda Flynn will present together – Energy Efficient and Sustainable Communities. Glen Morris is the General Director of Smart Energy Lab, SolarQuip, and Solaris. He road tests much of Australia’s renewable hardware. Glen told us this week that he won his first electric car in 1970 in Wellington NZ where he tried convincing his parents he could drive it to school!
He will be joined by Lucinda Flynn is a Scorecard assessor and Director of Going Green Solutions. Lucinda has worked in the sustainability and energy efficiency industry for more than 10 years. She will talk about all the things people in Yea can do to make their homes more energy-efficient and sustainable, no matter their budget. Both Lucinda and Glen are keen to have us consider: “What’s the easiest behaviour change that will reduce the cost of electricity and tackle the challenge of climate change?” (Glen) and “What are some of the ways we can rethink the way we do things in our everyday lives to reduce our contribution to climate change?” (Lucinda)
Join us at the Yea Wetlands Discovery Centre at 6pm for drinks and nibbles and online with the talks from 6.30 – 8pm. Bookings are now open for the third and last presentation by Glen Morris and Lucinda Flynn at www.trybooking.com/BXPOT. For more information call 5797 2663.
