Ballina Shire Council supports application for new croquet club

The Ballina Croquet Club is hoping to receive up to $300,000 in funding for a new club house at Cawarra Park. 

As the world waits in hope for a new dawn on climate change, 2 Degrees reveals the chaotic failure of the UN negotiations in Copenhagen.

It becomes chillingly clear that we cannot wait for governments to lead the way. So if commitment to act won’t come from above, perhaps the voices and actions of communities will bring the revolution that is needed.

2 Degrees takes to the streets of Port Augusta, a small South Australian town, and follows the passionate efforts to replace the coal-fired power stations with solar-thermal power.

2 Degrees will be playing at the Byron Bay Film Festival. For more information about the festival see Echonetdaily’s The weird, the wonderful and the wow factor.

 

Tickets for BBFF 2014 are on sale now. For program information, trailers and news, visit www.bbff.com.au or find the festival on Facebook.
