We are a group of West Hobart residents who are concerned about the impact that climate change is having upon the planet. As individuals, we each had felt the need to take action. WHEN was formed partly as a means to motivate and support one another, and partly to serve as a vehicle for action. Global warming is an issue that we can no longer afford to ignore. To do so will be at the expense of our children’s futures.
WHEN’s main focus is on making our individual lives more sustainable so that our lifestyles will have a lighter impact upon the planet. Allied with this is our desire to strengthen and enliven our local community.
We meet occasionally as a whole group. The WHEN sub-groups meet regularly and organise community workshops and activities. The current sub-groups are Sustainable Housing, Gardening and Food, and Sustainable Transport.
If you also would like to act on climate change, then please join us. We look forward to meeting you and to working together with you in order to develop a more positive and secure future for our community and for the world.
