NACC Sustainability-People -  Just heard from RDA Moreton Bay that Green Street will be working with businesses in Samford and other parts of the region to meet the challenges of covid 19 and to develop some creative ways to use the concept of the Circular Economy to meet those challenges. A special piece of work to do indeed and a privilege to lead it with an enthusiastic team.

NACC Sustainability-People -  Being involved in some really positive work with Regional Development Moreton Bay to develop a Regional Sustainable Business Strategy.  Talks with a lot of stakeholders in Moreton Bay Region gives cause for optimism about businesses 'doing well and doing good.'

If you are interested in presenting at a small community meeting in Tyabb, we can put you up at our place on a 'kind of' comfortable futon...we would like to provide a presentation on green streets, run a transition towns film and invite everyone to bring a plate...sometime in the new year, but will fit in with your schedule.

NACC Sustainability-People - The Samford Green Street Café overflowed with a hundred patrons and plenty of ideas at the function held at the Java Café on 23 October. Organised by the Pine Rivers Climate Action Network as part of Samord Green Streets the Café was a great social evening where people also responded to some ‘conversation starters’ around what Samford is already doing to be more sustainable and what else it might do in the future to be more sustainable. some action shots here. contact [email protected] or 0407 190162 for more information. Cheers, howard Nielsen
