About this event

Collective meetings are the engine room of the campaign. 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 change solutions.

Friends of the Earth Melbourne’s Act on Climate collective is active in the fight for climate justice. We push political parties to act, hold blockers to account, and support community champions across Victoria.

In 2017, the Act on Climate collective helped secure the passage of the Climate Change Act and lock in a $4.3 million grant scheme for climate solutions.

In 2018, we held the Liberal party to account for failing to present a climate policy and demonstrated that a head-in-the-sand approach to climate change will cost votes.

Since 2019, we’ve championed the case for the Andrews govt to set science-based Emissions Reduction Targets for the state. The looming decision will set the bar for what’s possible at the national level.
