The Albany Community Environment Centre (ACEC) was originally formed in 1994 with the purpose of promoting and supporting our local environment. In 2007, the group decided to focus on the issue of climate change, with the aim of increasing awareness of the need for sustainability in our lifestyles and future decision making.
Some of the activities undertaken by the ACEC in 2007 and 2008 included stalls at the Albany Show and the Master Builders’ Expo, a calendar of events to enable locals to hear from guest speakers on environmental issues currently affecting our region; workshops to teach skills such as composting; being part of local environmental activities, such as the Fauna Nightstalk.
The major undertaking of 2008 and 2009 for the ACEC was our Home Sustainability project. With funding from the State Government’s Sustainable Energy Development Office (SEDO), we obtained Home Sustainability Assessment training for some of our members and provided subsidised home energy and water audits for over one hundred Albany households.
If you have any environmental topics you are interested in and you’d like the ACEC to be involved in, please let us know…
If there is a need for a meeting, committee meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of the month, starting at 5.30 pm, at one of Albany’s quieter pubs.
