Iced Novo - a fun day out for a cause

Climate Action Newcastle have a fundraiser food stall at the Iced Novo Festival being held at the Croatian Club.

Iced Novo is an annual festival with bands and stalls out on the bowling greens, held by the Newcastle Echo Facebook News Page community. This year the funds raised from Iced Novo are going to the Croatian Club’s solar system – another local Club which can use some help with reducing the energy bills. 

Get along, have some fun...

and stand by for the next big Bowlo Solar Campaign...

T4 scrapped

Great news! The forth terminal 'T4' will not be built

T4 Protest

For several years the Newcastle community fought the proosal to build a forth coal terminal in the Port of Newcastle. The proposal was eventually approved, however the delay that the community campaign caused was worth it. The site owner PWCS, now concedes that this terminal is unviable. Thankfully this eventuated before any further destruction of estuarine habitats.

Congratulations to all of the community groups and individuals who put so much energy into this great outcome.

T4 scrapped - let's celebrate this Friday!

What: Soup, music and happy friends

T4 Protest

Have you heard the good news? T4 won’t be built. That’s right. There will be no fourth coal terminal in Newcastle!

Port Waratah Coal Services announced earlier this month that the $3.5 billion project won’t go ahead. In fact, PWCS will allow their lease on the Kooragang Island site to lapse. The fourth coal terminal was approved in 2015  but coal exports through Newcastle flat-lined and the three existing terminals provide more than enough capacity.

This announcement is such good news for Newcastle, with national and international ramifications. There will be less air, water and noise pollution, and fewer coal trains and ships. The Kooragang wetlands will be protected and our climate impacts reduced. There are signs our economy will diversify, with healthy and sustainable industries.

 Literally thousands of people supported the campaign, attending rallies, signing petitions, door-knocking, monitoring pollution from coal trains, holding public meetings, lobbying politicians, addressing the Planning Assessment Commission and making submissions.

Please join us for a celebration of the 6 year community campaign against T4.  Let’s raise a glass and kick up our heels! Let's share highlights from the campaign, connect with emerging community campaigns and celebrate this turning point for our city. 

When: 5:30pm Friday 6 July

Where: The Croatian Sports Club, 20 Albert Street, Wickham 

Please invite your friends and share this invitation with folks you think would enjoy the celebration. We’ll organise some hearty soup and bread. Please let us know if you’re able to help out by bringing a pot of soup and/or some bread.

Please RSVP 'going' on Facebook here > 

Carrington Bowlo Solar - Update

$21,750 raised so far!

To donate or view the Chuffed site click here

Sun Fundy FB Profile Pic NEW BLUE

We're getting close to seeing solar panels on the bowling club roof

Since last year Climate Action Newcastle have been working with Carrington Bowling Club to scope and raise funds for a rooftop solar system on the club. With gigs, raffles and special promotions put on by CAN and club CEO Jaci Lappin, the fund is now up to $21,750 - very close to our fundraiser target of $24,000.

The aim of the project is to help the club save money on their energy bills, and to generate more solar power in Newcastle. Local bowling clubs are important community institutions and spaces that we all use, so helping them to keep the doors open while generating renewable energy is a win-win.

Once this project is achieved CAN will be working with the Croatian Wickham Sports Club (where we meet the first Wednesday of every month). 

Anybody who would like to be involved in the next Croatian Club solar effort please call CAN on 0425 315664.
