The Nature Conservation Council of NSW is launching their successful Climate Challenge programme in the Illawarra region.
This free programme will give you access to free workshops, you’ll get to meet like-minded people, and you’ll have the chance to win some prizes.
How does it work?
You will receive a passbook, which guides you through all sorts of actions you can take to reduce your carbon footprint. Depending upon the actions you complete, you’ll earn stars (stickers you can put in your passbook). If you earn 35 stars by the final event of the programme, you’ll be named a Climate Champion and will enter the major prize draw.
Interested? You can register online (I just did!), or meet the organisers and register in person at the Wollongong Produce and Creative Traders markets in the Crown Street Mall on Friday 30 March 2012.
This sounds like a great way to get started if you’d like to live more sustainably, but don’t know where to start.
The Climate Challenge has previously been run in 6 different NSW Councils, and one in Victoria.
Go on, pop over and register! You’ve got nothing to lose!
