  • This event has passed.

The final General Meeting of the Benalla Sustainable Future Group for 2019 will be on Thursday November 28th at the Uniting Church, Carrier Street Benalla, opposite the Coles car park.

To finish the year we are screening the film Point Of No Return http://pointofnoreturndoc.com/, the story of the round the world flight by Solar Impulse the solar powered aircraft piloted by Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg who in 2016 succeeded in flying 40,000 km around the world without using a drop of fuel.

In the words of Bertrand Piccard, Pilot and project initiator “Our goal is not to transport passengers.  Our goal is to transport a message”.  And from director Quinn Kanaly, “At its core, this film is about the perseverance and courage it takes to make difficult decisions when everything is on the line. When we look at the daunting challenge of the global climate crisis, this story of innovation and collaboration offers hope.”

The Solar Impulse Foundation is promoting The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label which “seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth”, https://solarimpulse.com/.

Time: 7.15 for a 7.30 start.  Prior to the film BSFG president Peter Holmes will update the meeting on local initiatives to declare a climate emergency.

The film runs for 1hr 35minutes leaving time for supper after the film.  Although it is not necessary to register your attendance doing so will assist setting up for the night, in particular the room we use for the screening at the Uniting Church.  Register by contacting Peter by Wednesday November 27th; email peter_maddock@iprimus.com.au or sms 0418 135 330.
