The Climate Council is a non-profit independent organisation which aims to provide clear, independent advice to the Australian community. Some of you may have heard that with the recent change in Government in Australia we have been left without a science Minister for the first time in 80 years, and we also no longer have a Government funded Climate Commission. Information is the currency of democracy, and we are now being denied this information in more ways than one. However, the good news is that all the former climate commissioners are supporting the Climate Council with or without government funding, and donations from the public have been flooding in which means they have covered their running costs for the next year.
"Information is the currency of democracy, and Australians deserve to have independent information on the state of our climate. Similarly, emergency services, health professionals, local government and journalists need accurate information about a changing climate" Climate Council, 2013.
I couldn't agree more. If you would like to support this organisation, you can donate here.
The Finders Keepers Market kicks off today in Melbourne, and if you're not busily writing a thesis today or working tomorrow (like I am) then you should totally go! It's being held at the Royal Exhibition Building today 6pm-10pm and tomorrow 10am-5pm. So many amazing designers will be flaunting their creations and wears.
Speaking of amazing designers, Fleur Wood has launched her Spring/Summer 2013 range and it is absolutely to die for! The Spring/Summer range is soft, feminine, dreamy and whimsical. The fabrics include soft printed silks, vintage-inspired laces, pretty tulles and comfy cottons. If I had the money to spare I'd buy the whole range. It's gorgeous.
Have a lovely weekend! xx
