PAST EVENTS

#GREENBLUE RECOVERY

Campaign Launch Event

Come along to discover opportunities to take action with like-minded people, and make sure our economic recovery is not ‘business as usual’. Find out how you can make sure your voice is heard. We need our Far North Qld community to turn up, turn out and get LOUD – to make sure our region is heard this election. We need to be a strong collective voice as stewards of two World Heritage Areas. We need you talking and writing to our decision makers, community members, family and friends. 

TRAINING FOR OUR COMMUNITY

Community & Media Training: Telling our stories for a #GreenBlueRecovery

CAFNEC’s Core Trainers are working with the Climate Media Centre to host FREE full-day workshops.
We are at a pivotal point here in Tropical North Queensland. As the pandemic continues we are seeing the increasing impacts of climate change our natural environments and our communities are suffering. 
But found within the Green and Blue Economic Stimulus Package, our region has the answers and the opportunity to be better prepared and create a brighter future.
