Frontline Climate Alliance Vic Meeting w/ Dindi Transition

Climate impacts are already here. We need solutions, support and solidarity enacted now. 

In November we launched the Frontline Climate Alliance Victoria, to make the case for the Victorian government to resource adaptation for climate impacted Vic communities.

This meeting will feature Kim Croxford from the volunteer community group Dindi Transition in Taungurung Country who will be joining the call to present on their project. The group are working to determine their future locally in the transition away from native forest logging and build resilience to climate change.

 


The alliance will build grassroots power for community led adaptation solutions, and build pressure on the Victorian government to act on climate adaptation.

While there are lots of alliances focused on resisting extractive projects and cutting emissions, there is less work happening to bring communities together on the basis of building resilience to climate impacts. 

The Victorian government has made impressive investments into emissions reduction measures in the last ten years. However, in 2023, it seems bizarre that there is still no annual provision of resources in the budget for long term climate adaptation and resilience.

Communities need to make the case for the government to create a dedicated fund for climate adaptation. Through solidarity we can share knowledge and skills with each other as communities battle the same impacts. 

This call will progress discussions about climate impacts, our responses and solutions. We will share how grassroots communities across Victoria can benefit from a campaign for a Community Climate Adaptation Fund.

Many communities around the state are already experimenting with different ways to monitor and build resilience to impacts.  When climate disasters do happen, we want to be able to signal-boost messages from local communities about what support they need. 

This meeting is online.

We acknowledge that the lands we meet and work on across so called Victoria are stolen from First Nations people. Climate justice means land back and there can be no climate justice without justice for First Nations communities everywhere. Act on Climate values the leadership of elders past and present in caring for country. Solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people under settler colonialism in so called Australia is critical in the fight for liberation from all oppressive systems that devalue and exploit people and the environment.
