'Rethinking Cement' report launch this Friday at NewSpace

Beyond Zero Emissions is launching Rethinking Cement this Friday 5pm at the NewSpace Building (University of Newcastle Hunter St Campus)

Rethinking Cement sets out a pathway for modernising cement, eliminating carbon emissions and building strong and durable infrastructure.

Making cement is responsible for 8% of all global emissions. If we don’t rethink cement, we won’t achieve our Paris goals.

Modernising cement is achievable and affordable, and Rethinking Cement shows how Australia can lead the world with zero carbon cement. We have the technology to wipe out emissions from cement in ten years, and with smart thinking, we can even turn cement into a carbon sink of the future.

Rethinking Cement is dedicated to the memory of Jennifer Bates.

The event will consist of refreshments with registration at 5 PM, followed by presentations of the research from BZE Project Director Michael Lord, a Q&A panel and opportunities to network with industry, academic and government figures who share the same interest in sustainable infrastructure and development. 

We hope you can join us.

RSVP at BZE's page https://www.facebook.com/beyondzeroemissions/ 

Seats are limited, please RSVP soon to avoid disappointment.

Rethinking Cement has been made possible by our generous supporters, including the Hamer Family Fund, Pace Foundation, Melliodora Fund - a sub fund of Australian Communities Foundation, Stephen Whately, Jordi Bates and Kathryn Bennett.

This event is supported by the Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment, Engineers Australia, Mineral Carbonation International, and the Master Builders Association.

Stop Adani - 'Guarding the Galilee' Doco Night Tuesday 2nd May

Dear friend,

Right now, multinational mining giant Adani is doing everything it can to build the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history. The coal from this mine could single-handedly tip the planet above the safe limit of warming agreed on at the Paris climate talks.

But our elected leaders and big banks are not just letting Adani do this – they’re helping them.

Join us this Tuesday to find out what we can do together to Stop Adani!

What: Public screening of Stop Adani - Galilee documentary & soup night

When: Tuesday 2nd May, 6:20pm to 8pm

Where: The Croatian Wickham Sports Club, Albert Street, Wickham, NSW 2293

Click here to RSVP

Our Federal Government has promised Adani $1 billion of our taxpayer funds. The Queensland Government has given Adani the power to fast-track approvals. Westpac has given Adani money in the past, but on Friday it caved to public pressure and ruled out investing in new thermal coal basins (like the Galilee).

After the screening, we will be celebrating this huge achievement and discussing what the plan is from here. By Tuesday we should have some news about who the next targets are so we can keep the pressure on until this Adani mine is stopped forever. 
We are are gaining ground. Together we can #StopAdani!

Come along to the public screening of Stop Adani - Galilee documentary & soup night to get involved in this historic campaign.

We in the Hunter understand better than most just how devastating coal mining is on communities. Our friend and local coal campaigner Steve Phillips, will also speak about important coal campaigns in our own backyard, and what we can do to help closer to home.

This event is co-hosted by Climate Action Newcastle and the Newcastle Climate Justice Uprising Collective

For climate justice,

Zoe & Su

Newcastle welcomes Steve Posselt Kayak4Earth Sat Jan 21st

You might have heard about this remarkable man, Steve Posselt, making an 8-week kayaking mission to Canberra in a bid to make the Federal Government take climate change seriously. 

This Saturday, our friends at Newcastle Climate Justice Uprising and Hunter Community Environment Centre will be hosting a welcoming party for Steve at Horseshoe beach, to celebrate his stop in Newcastle, still the world's biggest coal port.

When: 10 - 11.30am Saturday 21st January
Where: Horseshoe beach
Wear hot colours: red, yellow, orange. Bring banners and placards, or pick up one of the provided placards when you arrive to wave as Steve pulls up onto the beach. Bring your watercraft of any description!

We will hear from Steve about what has compelled him to make the journey and from Newcastle Climate Justice Uprising about how you can get involved locally in the fight for a safe climate future.

Steve will paddle down the NSW coast, stopping to give public talks about the Climate Emergency Declaration and collect petition signatures, then he'll drag his kayak over 170 km over mountainous terrain to Canberra to deliver the petition to Parliament.

You can sign the petition now at climateemergencydeclaration.org/sign. Please circulate through your networks to help us reach the 100 000 signator target.
