Why this matters:

NQCC, Solar Citizens and our allies have advocated for a just transition to renewable energy in Townsville - helping to create a shared vision of a flourishing future for all.

There are big decisions being made about renewables and energy in Queensland and Townsville, now is a critical time for our political leaders to hear and act on the views of people and communities.

In the age of social media and misinformation, this is becoming harder. A lot of people in our community are confused about what our energy transition might look like and what impacts it will have on our environment, our health and the cost of living. 

It is more important than ever that Townsville have a say about where our energy transition is heading, and the benefits that can come with it if done well. That's why we need local energy champions to share this story and help create momentum.

Why attend the training? 

  • Connect with fellow change-makers and learn about climate impacts and solutions and what you can do to be an energy champion.
  • Develop skills and tools to tackle difficult climate conversations, bust myths and share your story about the energy transition.
  • Be a part of a growing national network of problem solvers and innovators committed to a clean energy future for all Australians. 
  • Gain a better understanding of clean energy opportunities in and around Townsville and how you can get involved. 

 

Facilitators:

  • Crystal Falknau, Coordinator, North Queensland Conservation Council 
  • Heidi Lee Douglas, CEO, Solar Citizens 
  • Imogen Butler, Manager, Climate Reality Project Australia & Pacific 
  • Kieran Pradeep, Energy Champions Organiser, Friends of the Earth Melbourne

 

How to apply: 

Please apply via Humanitix and answer the two following questions to help us training the training to your needs:

  • Why you are interested in the energy champions programme?
  • How you might use the knowledge and/or skills gained

The more local energy champions we have here in North Queensland, the better equipped we'll be to actively fight misinformation being pushed by backers of coal, gas and nuclear energy.
