In October 2019 the Ballarat City Council formally signed the global Charter for Compassion. To coincide with this signing Compassionate Ballarat held over sixty compassion-based activities throughout the City from 20 - 27 October 2019.
Included in these events was a community tree planting. Compassionate Ballarat joined forces with Ballarat City council who grew the treelings and Ballarat Environment Network (BEN) who helped us source the trees and the location to plant trees. This project was linked to the global Compassion Tree Project, the Green World Campaign and the Upper Emu Creek Landcare Group. 100 treelings were planted at the Mullawallah Wetlands. The aim of the global Compassion Tree Project is to link us together in a single global effort, connecting us all in our common humanity to take action about climate change.
