BEAM AGM Dinner: Saturday September 16th

This year’s AGM will be held at the Anglican Parish Hall in Seymour and will feature a guest speaker from the Moreland Energy Foundation on community-owned renewable energy projects. More details to come, but in the meantime you can check out this article from RenewEconomy on the importance of community energy projects.

Please consider joining the BEAM committee: a message from our President, Richard Telford

I recognise that there are few other independent groups in our region that have a voice, and stand up for issues that affect our environment. We, as a group, fill a vital role for our wider community. We are facing a very interesting time in our region as we transition to renewables, especially up here in Seymour, with the pumped hydro, wind farm and community solar on the cards. Once we get this community solar model up and running at the Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre, we will have a model that can be replicated around the shire.

I know that everybody is very busy. It comes part and parcel with caring for the world outside of our own households. It’s not easy to find the time to prioritise things that do not immediately affect us, but, we do not live in a bubble. Eventually these bigger picture issues will affect us. What gives me strength is knowing that our small group has such a BIG say in our region. People listen to us because of what we do and what we stand for. We can achieve so much more as a group than we can as individuals, mostly by chipping in just a couple of hours here and there.

We are building fertile soil, and it’s an exciting road ahead. Your energy can make BEAM stronger. Are you in?

The BEAM committee meets every 1-2 months. Meetings are a social, community building event with a shared dinner. We recognise that everyone has skills and knowledge to offer BEAM, and we encourage anyone who might be interested in joining the committee to send us an email to beam.inc@hotmail.com.
