@fieldwork_architects What a terrible start it has been to 2020 with extreme bushfires burning all around the country. We would like to express our gratitude to the brave women and men on the front line that are battling these fires - saving lives, homes, wildlife and our beautiful country. To all those who have been directly affected by the fires, our thoughts are with you.
As a community we need to urge the government to act on climate change, and as architects it is our responsibility to help create a much more sustainable built environment. There is no denying the link between the climate crisis and the extreme devastation we are experiencing. Effective action on climate change needs to happen now.
In addition to donating to the @nswrfs and @cfavic we have decided to support a lesser known fundraising campaign - The Goongerah Climate Refugees Support & Rebuild Fund. We became aware of this fund through the Goongerah Environment Centre Office (GECO) which is a grass roots organisation that has worked to protect East Gippsland’s forests for over 25 years. This community group is one that we have admired and supported for a number of years, and we appreciate the work that they do.
Goongerah is a beautiful community in far East Gippsland which has been hard hit by devastating fires and we urge you to donate what you can. Donations will go towards fire recovery efforts and the rebuilding of this community.
We have also compiled a list of links for places you can donate, and included non-monetary ways in which you can help. You can find the link to this document in our bio. The next step for Fieldwork is to roll up our sleeves and help with the recovery. (Photo credits: State Government of Victoria, Environment Protection Authority & NSW Federal Police.)
