OFT Agenda: Australian Democracy, MPEGs and Clean Energy
Outline: At this OFT we'll reflect and learn from recent Conversations, and also welcome two guest speakers to cover two important topics.
C4C's Volunteer MPEG Program Coordinator, Sue Dwyer will give us a run-down on the Australian democratic system and how best to influence it, and guest speakers from Bright Sparks will give us an update on the latest happenings in clean energy.
This is a great opportunity to bring your questions (and tricky questions Conversation guests ask) about clean energy and Australian politics.
