Event description

Description

Around Australia, coal-fired power stations are closing. Hazelwood in Victoria, Munmorah, Redbank and Munmorah in the Hunter region. And the planned 2022 closure of the Liddell power station. With each closure, the renewable energy transition moves a step closer.

A planned transition allows a community to develop new industries, training courses and other support services. This hasn’t always happened when other Australian industries have transitioned, resulting in poor outcomes for communities and workers.

Please join us for a lively discussion at 6pm on Wednesday 21 March or Thursday 22 March about how Muswellbrook can benefit from a planned energy transition.

What are your visions and ideas?
What opportunities and obstacles do you see?

A summary of the workshop and survey will be communicated to state and Federal governments and to the media and help inform grants to fund community projects.

Get involved!

We’re seeking volunteers to help administer a survey to learn how community members feel they will be effected by the energy transition, and how they will adjust economically, socially and emotionally. Nurses and midwives are especially invited to actively participate.

There will be a workshop for volunteers during the afternoon (2:30-5:30pm) on both Wednesday and Thursday. Then during the 6-8pm workshop, volunteers will help people complete questionnaires. We also hope volunteers will continue their involvement throughout the project to help with focus groups and other activities. What a great way to learn about and support your community!

Venue

On Wednesday, we'll meet at the Uniting Church Hall, 108 Bridge Street.
On Thursday, the workshops will be held at the RSL, 113 Bridge Street.
