Clean Energy Community Fair
The Community of North Sydney has called for strong #climateaction, but what does it mean to reduce emissions to #NetZero?
Join us on Sunday 2nd April at #NorthSydney’s first ever Clean Energy Community Fair: Powering North Sydney to Net Zero, to hear from local and industry experts as we analyse where North Sydney’s emissions come from and explore the technologies, products and lifestyle changes needed to reduce our individual impact and collectively respond to the climate emergency. You will also learn how to save money in your homes and vehicles.
This family friendly #event will be held at Norths, Cammeray from 10am to 3pm* and is coordinated by our local Federal MP Kylea Tink in collaboration with the Smart Energy Council, and local mayors from Hunters Hill, Lane Cove, North Sydney and Willoughby City.
We will showcase local businesses and #community groups and provide an Electric Vehicle display (99 Bikes, Fonz Moto and EV car owners to answer your questions). Food will be available via Norths cafe and we will also have hot water heat pumps and all things solar. Kids activities will include face painting and learning to juggle!
Throughout the day, dynamic panel discussions will be hosted, giving insight into some of the best ways for #households to accelerate the transition to net zero.
