SEE-Change is once again offering an Electric Bike Bulk Buy.
How this works is that if 10 SEE-Change members commit to purchase an electric bike as part of the bulk buy, everyone receives 15% off the cost of their electric bike.
On Thursday 16 October 2014, 26 SEE-Change members, friends and supporters came along to hear Simone and Kym from Switched on Cycles talk about electric bikes, and to ride them around the park in O'Connor.
If you are a SEE-Change member or are interested in finding out more about SEE-Change, please join us on Thursday 23 October for a review and celebration session followed by our Annual General Meeting (AGM).
By being a SEE-Change member and joining the SEE-Change Committee, you get to be more engaged and provide direction to the organisation.
Members initiate and sustain great projects around Canberra to support and inspire people to reduce our collective ecological footprint and to build a regenerative economy, with local groups in Woden, Inner South, Inner North and Belconnen.

On Thursday 28 August 2014, SEE-Change and Fusion Canberra organised a lecture about the issue of local and global food, and fuel security titled: Australia's Fuel Security - She'll be right?
The Presenter was Air Vice-Marshal John Blackburn AO (retired), formerly Deputy Chief of the RAAF, and now a consultant in the fields of Defence and National Security. The NRMA has published two of his reports on Australia's Liquid Fuel Security, the most recent in February 2014.
Based on this presentation, it is clear that fuel security is something that needs greater consideration.

“Measured Irrigation – clever water use in a Canberra garden”
"Measured Irrigation" is an automated tank-fed gravity feed irrigation, developed by Bernie Omodei in Adelaide (http://dot2dotpost.com.au).
Measured Irrigation runs at much lower pressure than typical irrigation systems, greatly reducing the likelihood of leaks and also allows for different amounts of water to be supplied to different water beds in a simple and controlled way.
