Recently Shannon Loughnane of My Extremely Long Walk for Climate Action contacted the Benalla Sustainable Future Group seeking support on his walk from North Coburg to Canberra from April 20 to May 14 2019.
Described as a Low-Carbon, Community-Powered Solo Walk, Shannon plans to arrive in Benalla on Saturday April 27, staying overnight & leaving for Wangaratta next day.
Shannon expects to arrive in Benalla at about 4.00pm and proceed to a Welcome to Benalla event at the John Cooper Hall at The Uniting Church, Carrier Street Benalla, opposite the Coles Car Park. This event is open to the public.
Shannon is collecting signatures on a petition which he will deliver to Parliament in Canberra. The walk will be low carbon, and community-powered, culminating in the delivery of the community’s messages to politicians in the capital. The petition will be available to sign.
Shannon will tell us about his project then hand over to BSFG, Renewable Energy Benalla and other interested people to hear about and share local actions on climate change.
After the meeting finger food and tea/coffee will be available providing an opportunity to talk about local climate change actions.Download Flyer
