CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Noosa Council is seeking to establish a voluntary Community Reference Group (CRP) to provide key input and guidance to council regarding the implementation of the recently endorsed Noosa Climate Change Response Plan.

Membership

The Climate Change Response Community Reference Group will consist of approximately 10 community members.

Council is seeking expressions of interest from the community that represent a range of interests, demographics and sectors that are specifically affected by climate change including, but not limited to renewable energy, Cleantech, the built form, transport, agriculture, households and business, young people, First Nation people, and the natural environment.

View the application form in the document library on the column on the right of this page. Applications close Friday 24th September.

Meetings

It is intended that the Community Reference Group will have several meetings prior to the drafting of an implementation plan for the Climate Change Response Plan for consideration by Council. These meetings may be held in person with the option to join online.

Terms of Reference

For further details on the roles and responsibilities of the Community Reference Group are provided in the draft terms of reference document located in the Document Library on the column on the right of this page.

PROJECT UPDATE:

Council endorsed the Noosa Climate Change Response Plan on 19 August 2021. A copy of the final plan is provided in the document library, along with the council report on submissions received during the community consultation process.

We are living in times of increasingly complex and rapid change, driven by technological advances, economic transitions, demographic shifts, and a changing climate. Noosa Council, in partnership with the local community and other levels of government, has an important responsibility for providing essential services, managing local risks, and supporting disaster recovery, as well as adapting to changing circumstances and finding new opportunities to support a safe and prosperous Noosa into the future.

In partnership with stakeholders from a range of sectors across Noosa, the Council has developed a whole-of-shire response to climate change - one that deals with carbon emissions and climate adaptation. The Climate Change Response Plan is a vision of a new future for Noosa, and a blueprint for us all to do our bit locally and to be an example for others of something better. It challenges us all to think big, heed the scientific advice and take careful and resolute action now.

The plan sets out the context, desired outcomes and actions for addressing climate change in Noosa Shire in partnership with the community, for the next five years. It provides overarching strategic direction, specific actions and targets for responding to climate change.
