Ryde Gladesville Climate Change Action Group
We are a small dedicated group of core members and a larger group of supporters. Currently there are lots of exciting things happening in the climate change arena and we welcome others to join the core group. We are also looking at forming a small group of volunteers who would like to be slightly more actively involved from time to time, but who do not wish to attend regular meetings. We will contact you when we are holding events or actions that need extra hands to see if you would like to help out. Please contact Jo on 0414 375 149 or email us with subject heading – “Action Team” and preferred contact details and any areas of interest.
