Climate and Energy Realists Queensland hold regular meetings on the Gold Coast

Meetings on a monthly basis, usually in the last week of the month at

CSi Club Southport, 154A Scarborough St, Southport, QLD 4215


Meeting Initiatives

With our new initiative to use Zoom presentations, we endeavour to bring both remote local and international speakers to our corner of the world.

This is combined with connecting to a remote audience to achieve a much wider coverage and interaction with groups and individuals, who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in a live presentation. This will be a cutting-edge development and potentially change the face of meeting attendance.

We are particularly interested in linking with large international groups, who like us, are focussed on community outreach. We are now linked to the CO2 Coalition after the presentation by Greg Wrightstone.
