Act on Climate collective meeting (online and in person)


ACTION GROUP MEETINGS EVERY TUESDAY NIGHT


Friends of the Earth Melbourne's Act on Climate collective works with frontline communities, workers, and unions to build a strong and diverse Climate Justice movement that governments can’t ignore.

Since 2017, Act on Climate has campaigned to make Victoria the national leader on climate action.

We led the community campaign for the Andrews government to set science-based Emissions Reduction Targets and are now calling on the Victorian government to commit to a plan to beat those targets and accelerate the pace of emissions reduction, and more.

Weekly collective meetings are the engine room for our campaigns.

Come along to get involved in a grassroots action on climate change. No prior knowledge or experience necessary, just a passion for community and climate solutions.

NOTE: Friends of the Earth is a COVID-safe workplace. When we return to face-to-face meetings, we ask that attendees are fully vaccinated. 

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways in the area now known as Victoria. We pay respect to Elders past, present, and emerging, as well as to all First Nations communities who significantly contribute to the life of the area. We acknowledge sovereignty was never ceded. This is stolen land.

Act on Climate update: March is a month of action!

With a Federal election in months and a state election in November, Act on Climate are hitting the ground running to hold the Morrison government to account and secure stronger policies here in Victoria. 

In the wake of devastating climate-fuelled floods in Queensland and northern New South Wales and another sobering IPCC report, we're calling for community members to channel the rage into action.

Here’s a quick update on our efforts in February and upcoming actions...

Act on Climate caught up with Liz Reen for a chat about the community’s campaign:
