WELCOME TO U3A ACT!

U3A membership is open to people 50 and over. Most are no longer in full time employment but are enjoying the third age of their lives.

Principles of U3A

  • To provide affordable learning opportunities for older people, using the skills and abilities of the members themselves;
  • Those who learn shall teach and those who teach shall learn, and there shall be no distinction between the two;
  • There shall be no qualification for membership, and no awards, degrees and diplomas shall be given;
  • The emphasis shall be on learning for the love of it, and shall include an emphasis on the values of making things and improving skills of all kinds;
  • Learning shall take place in a friendly, supportive and social environment;
  • Those joining U3A shall pay for its upkeep;
  • There shall be no payment to any person (member or non-member) for teaching or providing a service to members except in the case of reimbursement for such expenses as travel, photocopying, etc.;
  • The curriculum of a U3A shall be determined by the needs/preferences of members and according to the resources available to it; and
  • To be at all times, non-political and non-sectarian in our approach.

WELCOME TO THE AUSTRIAN HARMONIE CANBERRA

The Choir's main objective is to have fun and enjoy the musical experience while at the same time achieving a high level of excellence in its performances

The Austrian Harmonie Choir is a highly respected SATB Choir and a major force in the promotion of Austrian culture and music in Canberra and the wider community in Australia.

The Choir is fortunate to have a number of talented singers and musicians, which enables it to present solos, duets, quartets and instrumental pieces. Many of our singers do not speak German nor read music, but this is never an issue as we assist with pronunciation and provide MP3 audio files and translations of songs.

Come to one of our rehearsals, which are held Wednesday evenings from 7.15 to 9pm at the Harmonie German Club. We do not require you to audition, just have a genuine desire to sing and join this wonderful musical family.

Australian Electric Vehicle Association

By Community Groups
WELCOME TO THE AUSTRALIAN ELECTRIC VEHICLE ASSOCATION!

Electric vehicles — they won't poison you if you forget to turn them off.

The Australian Electric Vehicle Association Inc. (AEVA) is a volunteer run, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the cause of switching Australia’s transport networks to electric drive as quickly as possible.  We all share a common interest in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and EV technology.  Formed after the oil price shocks of 1973, the AEVA is the longest continuously running EV society in the world.

Our purpose is to provide a forum for social and technical communication in the EV field, create greater awareness of EVs and encourage their use, to foster further research and development in EV technology, and to be an official source of information on EVs in Australia.

For many decades the only way to access an electric vehicle was to build or convert your own.  The AEVA played a leading role in the establishment of national guidelines for electric vehicle modifications (NCOP14) and continues to advice DIY builders and registered training organisations alike.  Since the late 2000’s, commercially available electric cars and bikes have been trickling into Australia.  We represent all EV users and enthusiasts, and are more than happy to offer jargon-free advice on which EV is right for you.  We also make regular submissions to government and industry about policies which will help transition to electric drive, and away from imported fossil fuels for transport.
