Tim Flannery Event 30th March 2018

AUSTRALIAN OF THE YEAR, TIM FLANNERY, TO SPEAK IN NATIMUK Doors open 6:30pm Friday, 30 March, 2018 Internationally acclaimed writer, scientist, explorer and conservationist Tim Flannery will be at the Natimuk Soldier’s Memorial Hall Easter Friday to celebrate Natimuk Community Energy’s current and future projects with a talk titled "'Rising to the climate challenge through empowering communities”. Professor Flannery’s lecture will be an opportunity to be inspired and informed by one of Australia's leading thinkers on our planet and its future. He will discuss how communities around Australia are organising to create sustainable energy and employment solutions. Tim will be outlining the importance of these initiatives, as well as explaining some programmes that are assisting them. The evening will kick off with a celebration of the 10kW solar installation on the Footy Ground's Shearers Shed and a short update on other NCE projects, including a solar garden on the eastern edge of Natimuk that will produce enough electricity to power the town. Professor Flannery will then deliver his talk, and following an audience Q&A the event will wrap-up by 9.30pm. Natimuk Community Energy thanks Horsham Rural City Council for helping to sponsor this event and allowing us to keep ticket prices low ($10 full, $5 concession) so that the entire community can be a part of this unique local event.

The program will begin at 7:30pm. Funds go to support the Natimuk Solar Garden project
