The need to reduce carbon emissions in Australia has been an important and challenging environmental issue. The Clean Energy Legislative Package is a step in the right direction. To show support for the legislation as it goes through Parliament, environmental groups across Australia have responded with the 2011 Earth Relay.

As part of the 2011 Earth Relay, environmental groups from each state and territory will be relaying giant inflatable globes across Australia to eventually end up in Canberra at the Greenpeace Climate Rescue Station.

During the relay, environmental groups will be photographing the globes in iconic locations across Australia. Get involved and have your photo taken when the globe visits one of the following locations around the state:

Tuesday 11 October: “Climate Rescue of Wagga” will host the globe in Wagga Wagga

Friday 14 October: “Transition Blue Mountains” will host the globe at Echo Point, Three Sisters

Saturday 15 October: “ParraCAN” will host the globe at the Old Government House

Sunday 16 October: “Goulburn Field Naturalists' Society” will host the globe at Bungonia Gorge

Monday 17 October: “Say Yes Northern Beaches” will host the globe at Manly and Palm Beach

Friday 21 October: “Ryde Hunters Hill Flora and Fauna Preservation Society” will host the globe at Ryde

Saturday 22 October: “North Shore Climate Action” will host the globe at the Northbridge suspension bridge

Saturday 22 October: “STEP Inc” will host the globe at the Blue Gum Forest, Hornsby

Sunday 23 October: “Transition Newcastle” and “Climate Action Newcastle” will be hosting the globe at Nobby's Headland
