A great interview last week on Environmentaliy, with Amy Gordon, Communications Manager with the Australian Youth Climate Coaltion talking to us about the growing youth movement around environment and sustainability.
The AYCC has an amazing 90,000 online members and 500 active volunteers across the country.
One of their major campaigns at the moment is working with the local community of Port Augusta lobbying for Australia’s first solar thermal plant in Port August to replace the coal fired plant that is there now.
With all the sunshine and open space we have it is hard to understand why our government aren’t getting behind renewable projects.
For those tech savvy people out there that want to know how solar thermal plants work there are a couple of links below.
Next week on the show we have Jodie our friendly gardener talking all things gardening, be sure to tune in.
