There is a petition on the go as well. Suss it out here
For more info on the company Solar Systems check out their website. It’s got a run down of past projects, which are cool to see what’s actually already possible.
Always good to know a bit of the background I rekon….

This week, something big is happening. Youth Decide will be happening all this week, at literally 100’s of events around the country!
What is it? Youth Decide is Australia’s first ever youth referendum on climate change. This is a chance for the generation that will be most effected, to have their say on how we should act now. From September 14-21, young people from all around Australia will be able to have their say.
Vote now via the website, or rock along to a voting event near you!
If you’re in Melbourne or surrounds, there’s a Youth Decide concert happening in Fed Square this Wednesday, 16 September. The line up has now been released with The Cat Empire and KissChasey announced to be playing. There are still a few more special guests to be announced, but at this stage you’ll have to rock up to find out. It all kicks off at 5pm. It’s going to be good though, so get on down if you’re in the area!
Get onto it, get into it, get it happening.

Just got a link to a promo video that’s just been put out for Powershift. Check it out below. Pretty slick.
Also if you’re keen to head along to Powershift, but haven’t got around to registering yet, get onto it before midnight Saturday. Earlybird registration ends then, and if you get in early it’ll save you $25, which is always handy. Bargain really…

Ahoi there, how are we all? Episode #6 is where it’s at, Up Your Jumper style. In this episode I speak with Shanie and Tim from the Painted Fish. The Painted Fish is a B&B near the Fremantle beaches, built and designed to encourage and educate people about sustainable living and design. Shanie and Tim, speak a bit about how the Painted Fish has evolved and the other positives that have sprouted within their street.
