Climate Emergency Plan Youth Art Competition

Drawing Our Future

Calling all young artists!

We recently launched our draft Climate Emergency Plan and we would love for you to be involved in creating a sustainable future for the Mornington Peninsula. Climate change is impacting each and every one of us worldwide. It’s making our summers hotter for longer, increasing the risk of bushfires and much more. Now is the time to act.  There are many exciting opportunities for all of us to make a positive difference. Solar power, electric cars and energy efficient lights are all technologies that will help create a cleaner, greener world. There are many things that we can do at home to help such as turning off power when it is not needed, using less water, growing our own vegies, composting, recycling and re-using. Now is your chance to draw your dream for a sustainable future. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
