CLIMATE IN THE PUB - MEETUPS
Climate in the Pub Meetups provide a regular opportunity to meet others in Inner West Sydney who share your concern for the climate, find out what's happening to promote change and see how you can help take action on the climate crisis. We generally alternate these meetings with our Climate in the Pub series where we have a guest speaker.
We meet at the Merton Hotel, 38 Victoria Rd, Rozelle.
Come from 6.30 for a friendly drink. The meeting will begin at 7pm, and you are welcome to join others for a reasonably priced meal at the completion of the meeting about 8.15.
From July, our Climate in the Pub -Speaker meetings will be on the third Wednesday of alternate months. Check our calendar for the upcoming meetings and dates.

Next Meetup . . . (note new date Thur 17 August)
Thursday 17 August, from 6pm at Darling Street Anglican Church, 668 Darling St, Rozelle.
Our August Meetup will be very different from recent meetings. Organised jointly with Rod and Lesley Freedman's Meet the Director series, It will be a screening of the award-winning documentary film The Weather Diaries, a mother's meditation on her daughter’s future, overshadowed by the twin threats of climate change & mass extinction. Directed, shot and edited by Kathy Drayton who will be present for a QandA session after the screening.
The next Climate in the Pub - Speaker meeting will be on Wednesday 20 September.
At our last Meetup . . .
As well as a report from our working group on Electric Vehicle policy, about our recent stall at Orange Grove markets, reports from the Better Streets Coalition and from Move Beyond Coal, and plans for a Candidate Forum in March. Then we movd onto the highlight of the evening - Dirty Dozen Bingo! featuring little- (or well-) known facts about Australia's 12 biggest greenhouse gas polluters. A lot of fun was had by all!
Previously . . .
We don't have formal speakers at our Climate Meetups . But at the January meeting we invited retiring State MP for Balmain Jamie Parker to join us and reflect on his two decades as Leichhardt Councillor, then Mayor, and then MP for Balmain, and in particular in campaigning for action on Climate Change.
Climate Change Balmain-Rozelle is the group behind Climate in the Pub, a regular gathering to hear excellent speakers in a social setting. But we do much more to promote action on climate change at local, state and national level. In 2018, we won Most Outstanding Environment Group in NSW, an award presented by the Nature Conservation Council. Climate MeetUps are open to all from the inner west and beyond.
