The future of Bendigo in a warming climate

ground_cover.jpgPublic Forum

Capital Theatre, Bendigo

Wed June 15 at 7pm.

Bendigo is one of the more vulnerable places in Australia when it comes to global warming.

Apart from higher average temperatures we are told to prepare for more frequent droughts and lower overall rainfall totals. Is the city prepared enough for these changes? What are the predictions for Central Victoria for the immediate and distant future? What will happen to our farmland? Is there enough water to support all of us through the dry times? How will our wildlife cope? And what about the fire danger? What questions would you ask the climate scientists working on these issues?

Renowned climate scientists David Karoly and Penny Whetton will be joined by local ecologist Damien Cook discussing all of the above at a public forum at The Capitol Theatre on Wednesday the 15th of June and you are invited to attend.

This is a free event. All welcome.

There is a facebook page for this event available here.

This forum has been organised by a number of community members. We are currently seeking sponsorship from a range of local businesses and these will be mentioned on this page as they are confirmed.
