We have set up a WEB PAGE that we will keep up to date with webinar speakers and registration links as they are made available.

The market place and Playing the Climate Game dinner will happen later on in the year when it is once again safe to do so.

All activities and events will also be posted on the Latrobe Valley Community Power Hub Facebook Page, and likely posted on the partners and stakeholders social media pages. New Eventbrite links should also be available for most of these as well as they come up, however the web page will be our focus for keeping updated information in one location.

UPDATE: 19/03. Following developments regarding COVID-19 we are adapting our Smart Gippsland Future Series event so that it has no physical presence on the 15th of April. This means many of the workshops and presentations will go online while some will be postponed until later on in the year.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Jo on 51423042 or joannar@wellington.vic.gov.au
