I got a letter in the mail yesterday from Kiama Council – my application to be on the Kiama Sustainability Advisory Committee was accepted! I’ll be representing the Kiama-Kiama Heights area on the Committee.
I was pretty surprised: although I’m interested in sustainability, I’m not a member of any sustainability groups or anything, except for my involvement in the Sustainable Illawarra Super Challenge. There must be others around who are involved in the Greens party, Greenpeace, WWF, LandCare, etc.
Still, since applying I’ve become involved in Seedsavers Illawarra and the Jamberoo Future Care group, so I should be able to draw from a reasonably wide range of sources.
I’ll post an update when I have more information on what’s involved.
