We face challenging times across the globe with global warming and climate change, these challenges also bring opportunities to develop sustainable development, that is in balance with our basic needs of clean air, water and soil to grow our foods and plant our trees. A balanced approach is needed to ensure the clean water we drink and clean air we breathe is never compromised in the name of development.
Recent State government approval of the Wallarah 2 coal mine and Federal Government’s approval of Seismic testing off the Central Coast, does just that. It risks polluting the air we breathe and the water we drink. Our freshwater sources as lakes, estuaries, underground water tables and aquafers provide our community with the clean water needed to survive. These challenging times provide an opportunity for members of our community in voicing their concerns by joining us in writing letters to local MP’s over recently approved developments that impact on our precious water catchments and clean air. Our letter drive will be held in conjunction with our monthly wild plant sales on Saturday’s the 3rd August and 7th September. Join us, in this opportunity to voice to our representatives in parliament of valuing clean air and water over any development that risks our precious human needs. One of the best legacies we can leave behind for future generations is a liveable planet and community.
