From Shenhua to Paris via the Tarkine

This free event is just one of many initiatives by Sustainable Living Armidale’s Armidale Road to Paris which aims to generate local conversation in the lead up to the UN Climate Summit in Paris later this year.

Leadership is more important than ever right now, and we are fortunate to have Bob Brown, with his experience and vision, speak”.
This free event begins at 5pm Saturday, 19th September at Armidale Town Hall.
