FoE are a member group of Nuclear Operations Watch Port Adelaide (NOWPA) who are one of the groups hosting this event.

Come and hear about community and environmental concerns with BHP mining projects in Australia and overseas. From coal mines in Colombia and Indonesia, the infamous Olympic Dam uranium mine in South Australia to uranium exports through Port Adelaide – at this forum the spotlight will be on BHP’s behaviour not their share price.  The event leads into the action outside the BHP-Billiton AGM at the Entertainment Centre the next day.

Kevin Buzzacott

Bob Briton, NOW Port Adelaide

Dave Sweeney – Australian Conservation Council

Mia Pepper – Conservation Council WA

Take the Green Pledge for FoE in October!

The Green Pledge involves taking 5 personal actions for one week to limit your carbon emissions to 50% of the average Australian. By getting friends and family to sponsor you for your efforts, you can raise awareness and funds to help tackle climate change. This year The Green Pledge is taking place from the 17th-23rd of October.

You can choose your 5 personal actions from 9 options. Options include eating vegetarian meals, taking public transport and having 2 minute showers. See “Your 5 Steps” to choose what your Green Pledge week will entail. We encourage people to take on both simple and challenging commitments, to see what you can do! Beyond the week, we hope that participants will adopt some of these changes into their everyday lives as they realise the benefits of these alternatives.

Carbon emissions are a key contributor to anthropogenic climate change. By reducing our carbon emissions, we can help reduce the dangers of rapid climate change including more frequent extreme weather events and rising sea levels. Australia has one of the highest per capita GHG emission rates on the planet, and we can play a big role in reducing global emissions.

Funds from these donations go directly to Friends of the Earth, a grassroots activist organisation. All contributions are tax deductible.
