Gold Coasters will soon have a chance to give their views on how we can best adapt to climate change at a State Government-run workshop.
The workshop, at Robina Community Centre on Monday 5 December, is part of the government’s public consultation process to make sure the state is on track to manage the impacts of climate change.
Queensland’s Environment Minister Dr Steven Miles said it’s important that everyone has a say on how we can address this global issue.

“We want everyone’s opinions – mums, dads, families, business and industry groups, agriculture groups – from the person in the street to the experts,” said the Minister.
Dr Miles said the State Government is investing $3 million to develop the Queensland Climate Adaption Strategy which “will help the community, industry, local government, and research institutions in identifying climate change risks and implementing solutions.”
The Gold Coast workshop will be held from 6pm – 8pm at the Robina Community Centre (196 Robina Town Centre Drive). Alternatively, you can make a submission or take part in an online survey at www.getinvolved.qld.gov.au, or by emailing written submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
