Are you concerned/wondering/completely freaked out about climate change but don’t know what to do? NCCR is here to be a crucible – a petri dish – a garden on steroids – a conduit – a half way house for us to find and meet like minded others to grow the broad, inclusive, connected, unstoppable movement on climate change we need to achieve the Big Hairy Audacious Goal of keeping the world’s warming to 1.5 degrees within years (11 to be exact), not decades. More than a “new group” working on climate change in Newcastle, it aims through connecting with and growing diverse communities and through providing a place for individuals to come, to bring climate change to the kitchen table, the barbecue, the political office, the bus stop, the water cooler, whatever and wherever it needs to be heard, with we as communities collectively declaring: CLIMATE CHANGE – NOT ON OUR WATCH. It proposes to provide as space and a nurturance to bring together people who want to MAKE INEVITABLE, powerful and effective cultural change against climate change and keep the world within safe levels of warming. Where a transition to a future safe from climate change becomes a defining paradigm of the next decade, and rescues that future.

Make Your Change acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we live, play, advocate, and activate.  We acknowledge their continuing connection to Country and community, and pay our respect to Elders past and present. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.  We are committed to honouring their unique cultural, and spiritual relationship to the land, air, waters and seas—as well as their rich contributions to society. We acknowledge the sovereignty, land, and law of First Nations were never ceded—this always was and always will be the Land of First Nations people.
