Act on Climate is made up of a diversity of communities, from the inner city to rural areas, young and old, and from many professions, who are already seeing the impacts of climate change in their lives in different ways. We are bringing together a coalition of groups fighting for all forms of social and environmental justice, businesses, and community interest groups to advocate for strong and swift action on climate. Through holding forums, roundtable discussions, fun actions, and media presence, we are able to facilitate these groups to advocate for their communities and pitch proactive ideas through state government climate policy development processes.

To work with communities, workers, unions, businesses and other stakeholders to build a strong and diverse pro-climate-action constituency that governments can’t ignore
To build resilient communities that are prepared for the impacts of climate change
To influence policies that prevent climate change from getting worse and also that prepare us for climate change adaptation
To build and demonstrate strong public support for climate change action through community organising, political action, and media presence
To empower communities to talk about the ways the climate crisis is already impacting on their lives, and about the positive, job-creating solutions they want to see that have social justice at their core.
