In 2019, we engaged in the Climate Emergency Campaign with great results. It brought the community together which was very evident in both the community Information evening we ran and the resulting whole-day Council-facilitated community forum the allowed individuals and organisations to put their point of view about climate change to the Councillors. For our campaign we held stalls at markets and we walked the streets asking people to sign a petition requesting the council to declare a climate emergency. Our posters were highly visible in homes and shopfronts.
Because the energy around the town in this campaign was so palpable but then was interrupted by the pandemic, we are now seeking to reconnect with the energy and intentions: our current campaign is coming back to this same visual strategy: same colours and iconography in the posters.
