Act On Climate

Act on Climate is a team of citizens who are concerned about climate change and want to take action on it at a grassroots level.

We are a diverse bunch from all walks of life; from the inner city to rural areas, young and old, and from many professions, who see the impacts of climate change in our lives already in different ways.

Economic Justice

Economic Justice

The Economic Justice Collective calls on the Australian Government to stop including INvestor State Dispute Settlement clauses into trade deals. These deals are contributing to a race to the bottom for environmental protections and further the neo-liberal agenda - which is the cause of so much of our environmental and social woes.

We believe that as a state-based environmental organisation, our best contribution to slowing climate change is to stop the further development of fossil fuel projects in Australia and help drive the transition to 100% renewables as fast as is humanly possible.
