As part of a Just Transition for South Gippsland, we are intent on working with business, community, sports and arts groups, as well as all levels of government. This includes the South Gippsland Shire Council.
In the lead up to the October Council Elections, we will be campaigning for a Just Transition at local government level, a project which we have named Council Matters.
There is much that Council could do to help the region move away from carbon emitting fossil fuels and address the various social issues we are confronted with.
Open to anyone except candidates (and people working on candidate campaigns), we invite you to join with us to try and set the agenda for the next Council.
We will be meeting every second Wednesday at 7:30pm, likely via Zoom, beginning the 11th of August.
You can read about a key aspect of what we think is needed to ensure democratic participation in the next Council below.
If you would like to get involved, please email email@example.com.
More will be posted here as the project takes shape.
Next Council Matters meeting:
We meet at 7:30pm every second Wednesday via Zoom, starting August 11.
Please click through to see how candidates responded to our survey. We received responses from 14 of 24 candidates.
Coastal pp. 2-7
Tarwin pp. 8-11
Strzelecki pp. 12-15
The basic idea behind the survey was to gauge how closely we think candidates align with the idea of a Just Transition for South Gippsland, as outlined in our Roadmap. A big thank you to all candidates who responded.

South Gippsland spans Bunurong and Gunai-Kurnai country. We acknowledge that this land is unceded and pay respects to Elders past, present and emerging. A just transition is one that allows for First Nations' sovereignty.
