Upcoming Local Government Elections information: So You Want to be a Councillor


A podcast has been developed from the series: Land and Sea Cry Out which amplifies local knowledge and experience of climate changes.  The series showcases Australian communities responding, planning, adapting, raising awareness and/or taking action to ready their places - themselves and their environments - for weather changes.  This podcast is a collaboration between local councils and their communities, Griffith University researchers and funded by the Queensland Climate Resilient Councils Program, a partnership between Local Government Association of Queensland and the QLD Government Department of Environment and Science and will be available soon.

The attached poster has also been developed to accompany this podcast and is a pictorial representation of this podcast.  

For more information, please contact Associate Professor Kerrie Foxwell-Norton on 0400040711 or via email at
