Community sector organisations are pivotal in empowering local communities to actively engage in the energy transition, advocating for equitable access to clean energy and supporting vulnerable populations. By participating, you will enhance our collective capacity to emphasise social equity and inclusion in energy decision-making.

Even if your organisation isn’t directly involved in energy, these changes will impact your members and the communities you serve. This forum aims to equip attendees with the knowledge to navigate the energy transition effectively and understand its implications.

Date: Wednesday 26 June 2024
Time: 10am - 3.30pm
Venue: UCity, 43 Franklin Street, Adelaide

SACOSS members are able to purchase tickets for $55, with non-member tickets starting from $77. Lunch will be provided.
