Launch: Victoria's Climate Impacts Map and Summer Strategy

We know the ice caps are melting and the Great Barrier Reef is bleaching, but what climate impacts are happening in our own backyard?
Act on Climate has put together an online interactive map of climate impacts to help answer the question.
On Wednesday 27 November, Act on Climate will launch the map of Victoria which highlights examples of local climate impacts that are already being felt across the state.
We'll be joined by special guest speakers with extensive knowledge of climate impacts.
Dr. Mittul Vahanvati of RMIT University will present on community resilience and bring us right up to date with the latest science on how heatwaves and bushfire risks.
Citizen scientist Aileen Vening will detail the dramatic beach erosion occurring in Inverloch and explain the link to climate change.
Lastly, Act on Climate will outline our strategy to maintain momentum over the summer.
Please join us at the Kathleen Syme Library from 6.45pm. No prior knowledge or experience needed, just a passion for action. Light snacks and bevies provided.
This event will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nations. We acknowledge this land was stolen, and that sovereignty was never ceded.
