Save our open space - picnic in the park

Our open space parks are a treasured place to be with family and friends amidst our busy suburbs and lives. One such park on the Kororoit Creek in Sunshine is under threat.

Melbourne Water have asked Brimbank Council to Rezone the land along Kororoit Creek (at 113 Fraser St) from Public Open Space so they can sell it off for housing. Join me and the community for a community picnic to find out more, including how you can help save our park.

At the Park on Kororoit Creek - 113 Fraser St, Sunshine.

Right now, a company called Mantle Mining is test drilling in Bacchus Marsh, just 60km West of Melbourne, with plans to start digging up and exporting dirty brown coal at the expense of valuable farmlands, its owners wishes, and a safe climate future for us all.

Public meeting: On The Edge: A forum on food & sustainability around Australian Cities.

Whichever way you look at it, food production forms the basis for physical, environmental, economic, social and cultural health. How we preserve, manage and develop our agricultural resources close to where a majority of people now live worldwide- in cities- will determine the future health, sustainability and conviviality of our communities.

Public meeting: You say you want a revolution: Not Sorry Enough

From the battles for basic civil rights four decades ago, to the overturning of terra nullius and the stolen generations apology, Australian Indigenous activists have achieved much over successive generations. Yet it would seem many aspirations have been left behind along the way, and there is so much left to achieve. What are the short-term and long-term goals Indigenous Australians are setting for their communities? How are the pathways to change themselves changing? And who will be leading the way?

Speakers: Robbie Thorpe; Karla Grant; Linday Bruney; Kim Hill; Tania Major.
