In response to Geraldine Crumpton’s letter (20 January), Byron Shire’s North Coast Climate Action Group formed one of the first transition towns in Australia (search: Transition Byron Shire) in 2009.
Transition Byron Shire brought the work of Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) into the Shire and that resulted in a partnership of BZE with Byron Shire Council. That eventually resulted in the formation of Zero Emissions Byron (ZEB) (zerobyron.org) in 2015 and the Shire’s goal of zero net emissions by 2025.
ZEB is making significant progress in solar energy, promotion of electric vehicles, tree planting, and waste composting, but there is much more to be done, urgently. Subscribe to the ZEB newsletter; ideas and volunteers are always welcome.
