Not sure where the time goes but here we are in the middle of another year and the CRNA Forum is just around the corner in November. This year the CRNA Forum will be held in Sydney so watch the bulletin space for updates.
Membership renewal is due at this time of year so please be prompt and if you like what CRNA is about, recommend us and encourage others to join us in own War on Waste. Most people would have seen the three part series on the ABC and there will be some follow up through podcasts. It was fantastic to see The Bower featured for their innovative Repair Cafes. My understanding is that since the War on Waste piece went to air there have been significant increases in enquiries with regard to attending the repair Cafes at Marrickville and Parramatta.
In May quite a number of members attended and presented at the Coffs Harbour Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Conference. With keynote speakers such as Tim Silverwood, Co Founder and CEO of Take 3 presenting we all new it was going to be an inspired event. I think many came away from the conference determined to continue to evolve the spirit of cooperation amongst the different sectors addressing waste. It has become clear to me that we need to cooperate as well as at times specialize if our efforts to reduce waste effectively at all levels.
Let's face it it's no longer just the Three R's anymore - it's as many R's as you can deliver! Repurpose, Renew, Reuse , Recycle, Revolutionise our thinking and Regenerate our environment, and while your at it be Resourceful in your approach and Research what needs to come next.
