Want to be part of creating a safe-climate future here in Australia? This year Australia’s peak organisation representing young people on the issue of climate change the Australian Youth Climate Coalition has launched it’s most ambitious push for renewable energy in Australia to date. And you can be part of it. It’s time to stop just talking about the change we want to see in the world and time to come together and take action. Community groups, schools, businesses, university clubs and more are coming together to be part of this campaign to Repower Australia. Anyone can get involved, just sign-up here: http://repower.aycc.org.au/. Our Government will only invest in renewable energy if they know the community demands it. But instead of just telling them we want a country powered by 100% renewable energy, we’re getting started ourselves by repowering Australia one cafe, pub, school and community venue at a time. This campaign will show communities across the country the benefits of renewable energy, and how it can be achieved, but also send a strong message to our leaders that it’s about time they take action too. Hold an event in your local community and Repower Australia from today. The AYCC will provide resources and guides to help you out, you can check out the resources page here: http://repower.aycc.org.au/. Holding a Repower event is simple: find a local venue, then hold a fundraiser and put the money towards putting solar panels on the roof, buying GreenPower or investing in energy efficiency. Already in Canberra, a group raised $10,000 to repower an IGA supermarket and in Brisbane young people repowered a bowls club. Get on board and Repower your community! Check out venues happening in your area too at http://repower.aycc.org.au/.

Peter Russell-Clarke
Iconic TV chef and co-ops champion, Peter Russell-Clarke
"...because a lot of profit made from human effort is vanishing out of the local community where it is generated, we are becoming acutely aware that we need to join hands and protect each other by striving together to the benefit of our neighbours as well as our own family. We need to co-operate with each other - Bravo the co-operatives amongst you."
