The Victorian community is coming to terms with continually increasing energy costs and threats to reliability of supply – in January, Melbourne hospitals dimmed their lights to ensure their supply wasn’t interrupted during our hot weather.
So, it is clear that we need to discuss what has to be done to ensure that all Victorians are going to be able to access affordable energy in the future. And this must be achieved in a context of developing and adopting new technologies which ensure that our future energy is clean and sustainable.
Come along and be part of a discussion using two UN Sustainable Development Goals as the starting point: SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy and Goal 10: Reduced equalities.
Luke Barbagallo, Partnerships and Program Manager, Pollinate Energy
Donna Luckman, CEO, Alternative Technology Association (ATA)
Other panellists will be announced soon.

17 Goals in 2018 Program
The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are a “universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity”.
The 17 goals – and their related targets – are, by their nature, based on a global agenda so are they relevant to Victoria? If so, what is being done or planned? Can we set and achieve local targets?
In 2018, UNAA Victoria is running a year of events to discuss the SDGs in a local context. Check our website – www.unaavictoria.org.au for details.
