DANCERS took to the streets of Bathurst last Friday to try to raise people "out of their funk" and draw attention to the environment.
Around 25 people met at Machattie Park to be part of Discobedience - a chance for people to share their love of the environment and express their concerns for it.
Keegan Altmann, social media officer for Bathurst Community Climate Action Network (BCCAN), which organised the event, said it was an opportunity for like-minded people to come together and draw attention to what she said was a climate emergency facing the region and the world.
She said the idea of the disco theme was to "wake people out of their funk" and start addressing the problems.
She described the event - which was led by former Bathurst woman Alison Plevey, who is now part of the Australian Dance Party - as "joyful".
She said BCCAN had seen similar events conducted elsewhere.
"We want to raise awareness with the local population and council that we care about environmental adaptation and mitigation policy," she said.
Ms Altmann said it was great Bathurst Regional Council had already implemented policies to protect the environment, including using renewable energy and protecting the water supply.
She said the dancers received a lot of support as they made their way through the CBD, including people beeping car horns encouragingly or cheering them on.
She said it was encouraging people wanted to learn more and find out what they could do to help.
