Electrify Boroondara Homeowners – Ask Me Anything Webinar

Are you thinking about electrifying your home but have tons of questions swirling in your mind? Join EB’s webinar and get your burning questions answered by Boroondara homeowners who have electrified their own homes.

If you’re not able to visit Boroondara’s open homes on Sustainable House Day, or even if you are, this is your chance to hear from the owners of those homes, and what their electrification journey looks like to date.


Ask Me Anything Webinar – hosted by Electrify Boroondara 
Date: Tuesday 30 April
Time: 7.30pm – 9.00pm
Free admission: please register online below. 


Please join us on 7 May for our annual Planning Night at the Pub for 2024. The stage is set, but we need diverse voices from the community to help us plan our tactics leading up to the next election. 

Our campaign focus is NO NEW COAL OR GAS. We are tackling this with a three-pronged approach:

  • INFLUENCE – Engaging with our local Federal representatives to advocate for direct climate action
  • COLLABORATION – Expanding Higgins CAN’s reach and engagement through our associated member groups
  • ENGAGEMENT – Bringing the wider community along on the journey, reaching swinging voters and people who care about climate

Do you have ideas for actions we can take to make a difference? Do you have any skills you can bring to Higgins CAN’s small and dedicated volunteer team? Do you want to be part of the solution?

Please bring your enthusiasm for climate action along to the Planning Night at the Pub and enjoy an optional meal with like-minded neighbours. We will have a special guest facilitator on the night to help drive a productive discussion – this is an event not to be missed!

All welcome. Hope to see you there.

Higgins questions the Minister for Climate
