Enabling change in our Society, Environment and Economy (SEE)

Belconnen local group

SEE-Change Belconnen (first named the Jamison group) was the first SEE-Change incorporated entity, which formed to reduce ecological footprints through a series of suburb-based projects.

The Jamison group ran a full program of activities: the group conceived and ran the first solar bulk buy, set up a bike trailer hire service, started the SEE-Change newsletter, ran an ecological footprint study across three suburbs and ran a series of ‘Sustainability in the Suburbs’ evenings at Macquarie Primary School.

The group also gave SEE-Change its first Executive officer: Vanessa Morris was the dynamic secretary of the Jamison group before she left to take up the Executive Officer position in SEE-Change Inc.

In Jamison a strong interest in solar technology became apparent, and one of their most influential projects was to coordinate a solar bulk buy which saw around 60 homes in Cook, Aranda and Macquarie install new solar photovoltaic or solar hot water systems on their rooves.
