Presenting our Transitions magazine

We’re thrilled to present Transitions, a magazine telling the inspiring stories of Latrobe Valley residents leading the charge for climate action in their own community.

Exactly three years ago, in July 2018, we launched the Communities Leading Change program in Gippsland, in partnership with the Gippsland Climate Change Network

Today, we are thrilled to present Transitions: Stories of Gippsland Communities Leading Change, a magazine telling the inspiring stories of a resilient community leading change in the Latrobe Valley. 

In Transitions, we hear the stories of more than 25 Latrobe Valley and Gippsland residents who see a bright and healthy future for the region beyond the traditional coal industry.

READ THEIR STORIES

There are profiles of workers in various sectors, including healthcare, renewable energy, transport, agriculture and coal power sectors, as well as case studies of regenerative farming, solar and wind projects, sustainable printing and more.

The magazine highlights the power, resilience and hope the community has in creating a safe and sustainable future for the next generations in Gippsland. It is a testament to the power of people to lead change in their own community.

Transitions was born from a program that we partnered to launch back in 2018, supporting people in the Latrobe Valley to discuss what transition meant to them and what their vision of the future looked like.

Climate for Change trained 33 local people to facilitate conversations on climate change and a safe future for the region. These people engaged more than 200 locals and also went on to start Communities Leading Change, a group working towards a just transition in Gippsland.

We are so proud to have supported this community to create the change that they want to see for their future. 

We hope that you enjoy reading these truly inspiring stories.
