Council’s Cool Changes program supports communities in the Macedon Ranges Shire to respond to climate change and develop local climate change action plans.
Cool Changes is a place-based approach to community climate action, and its success requires your participation.
Throughout the duration of the project, we have worked with the community via surveys, consultation with local environmental groups and a series of in-person workshops.
Over the months of April and May, participants in the program worked collaboratively to create a shared vision for climate action in Gisborne and have drafted a Community Climate Action Plan(PDF, 3MB) .
If you couldn't make it to the workshops, you can join in the discussion online below. We welcome the differing participation methods and thank you for any contribution you make along the way. Place your comments, suggestions, ideas in the discussion section below. Consultation period closing 10 July 2022.
