(Environment Centre NT's Elected Member Engagement Group)
If you are interested in engaging with decision makers and expressing your opinions about the state of the environment and environmental management in the Northern Territory, become a part of Environment Centre NT's Community Action Group. Together we draft submissions, make phone calls, write letters, door-knock, letter box drop and meet with politicians and senior bureaucrats at all levels of politics.
This month, we will be preparing submissions for the Origin Energy B2 Pty Ltd - Environment Management Plan - 'Amungee NW Delineation Program'. This 'program' will facilitate the drilling of 12 fracking wells under the guise of exploration. The approval of this Environment Management Plan will allow Origin Energy to sell fracked gas without a production license. This Environment Management Plan is the perfect example of industry pushing ahead and community concerns being left behind. We need to raise our voices as loudly as possible, Gas Production is on our door step. Submissions are due next Monday, 15 August 2022. Come along this Thursday to find out more and get some advice on what to include in your submission.
