CarbonNet Community Reference Group

The CarbonNet Community Reference Group (CCRG) was established in 2019 and is chaired by Victoria’s Lead Scientist, Amanda Caples.

The CCRG plays an important role in forming a conversation with Gippsland communities. Members provide advice to the project team and help to facilitate effective two-way engagement with local communities and stakeholders in Gippsland.

The role of the CCRG includes:

  • Helping to identify key social and community values in Gippsland for CarbonNet to consider as the project progresses
  • Providing advice about potential issues that may affect local communities in relation to the project, and contributing ideas for solutions
  • Providing advice on future engagement activities that could be undertaken in Gippsland, including with key stakeholders and the general public.

The project team is excited to be working with Gippsland residents to help contribute to a positive future for the region.
