The COOLmob Cool Communities Project is funded by the Australian Federal Government, and aims to educate the Top End community around carbon emissions and how as individuals and businesses we are able to measure our carbon footprint, or in other words the impact our daily habits and actions have on the planet.
Did you know COOLmob began as a cool communities project almost 20 years, ago? That's why we've chosen this name, as this project is all about 'cooling' our impact on our heating planet, by learning more about our carbon footprint and how we can reduce it.
This project will use interactive tools like carbon footprint calculators, educational resources and workshops to help the Top End community understand how we can reduce our impact on the planet and our carbon emissions.
Through partnering with schools, City of Darwin Council, local Landcare groups and other interested groups, this project will run tree planting workshops to allow people to get involved and active in planting locally suitable trees, greening Darwin and ensuring that we have mature and suitable trees in the future to keep our city green, cool and more climate friendly. You really can't have enough large trees and these take a long time to mature!
