Penrith Action for Community Transition – Treasurer

Description: PACT has a Board of Directors: we hope the new Treasurer will become an active Director and assist with planning and running activities such as events to further our aims.

We work to raise awareness of the issues associated with climate change, scarcity of resources and reducing biodiversity, to help people to reduce their carbon emissions and to increase community resilience.
