How a small team can influence a much wider community

John Thompson from Mitchell Community Energy Inc. speaks to us about the challenge of creating change in rural Shires with widespread townships

Mitchell Community Energy faced the obstacles of only having a small group of members to support their project & whilst they wanted to create change across the whole of the Mitchell Shire, they realised, with towns so spread out, this was physically impossible, in one push

The solution was to focus on their one town of Seymour & create a successful model which included bringing in influencers from different industries to impact renewable energy in their town. This model could then be translated to other communities !!

Making a change in communities often requires a sideways approach. Listen in to hear how Mitchell Community Energy created solutions by thinking outside the box!
