“Wake up and smell the coffee,” sings Melbourne-based American artist Robert Rothko. The line echoes the sentiments of climate change advocates around the world encouraging people and political leaders to take action. With much of the world in a lockdown from the coronavirus pandemic, the message comes at a time when many are afforded the opportunity to reflect on their lifestyle choices and day-to-day activities.


Emerald Solar Map
Our solar sign/map is outside the community House in Belgrave-Gembrook Road. It details all the community and community buildings in Emerald with a solar system. Designed by a local graphic artist at Pangaea Productions
it is very good to look at. It will be updated in late 2022.
