Transition Workshop: What’s Next?

8th August 2018

If you came along to our Transition Forum back in May this year, you might recall that there were a number of topics discussed and voted-upon as possible Transitional projects for Apollo Bay.

We have now completed workshops for the first three – being Waste, Artisan Coast/Social Enterprise and Energy, but still have a range of fantastic ideas which could be substantially beneficial to our community.

If you’d like to be involved in any of the below projects, please get in touch with the organiser using the contact details listed. The Transition Apollo Bay Steering Committee will look forward to hearing an update from each group leader at our Open Meeting in October.
