Australia’s leading local government climate summit, Transforming Australia 2020, is happening in Noosa, Queensland.

The summit, run by the Cities Power Partnership, Australia’s largest local government climate alliance, will draw together council, industry and community leaders in Noosa from 28-30 October 2020 to develop regional climate and energy solutions.

Noosa Mayor, Tony Wellington, said his council was honoured to be hosting the Summit, which will address the climate impacts facing many Australian communities.

Transforming Australia 2020 will see government and community leaders join forces with industry to develop and accelerate the big ideas and solutions that are revolutionising Australia’s approach to energy and climate change.

The Summit will cover current issues including getting a community to net-zero emissions, investing in large-scale renewable energy, building bushfire resilient communities and developing sustainable transport networks.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit local climate projects, including the Sunshine Coast Solar Farm, a 15MW solar installation owned by Summit partner Sunshine Coast Council.

The pre-conference tour, showcasing some of the region’s ground breaking sustainability and energy projects, will show Summit delegates from around the country how the Sunshine Coast is working to become one of Australia’s most sustainable regions.

David Craven director of the Cities Power Partnership said last year’s summit was a huge success that initiated new council collaborations on renewable energy and sustainable transport projects.

“After the success of the last Cities Power Partnership summit, we’re excited to be drawing local government powerhouses together to accelerate Australia’s climate and energy transformation,” he said.

“Local governments are fast emerging as a major part of Australia’s climate solution. Join us as we work together on climate and energy projects to secure a safe and healthy future for Australian communities.”
