On September 21, thousands of Australians will turn out for one of the World’s largest ever days of climate action.
Our message is simple - Action, Not Words - as political leaders fail to take real action on climate change, we must empower ourselves and our communities to bring an end to fossil fuel expansion and to protect and grow our renewable energy sector.
Thousands will gather in Canberra for a Festival of Community Action.
You'll hear from community leaders about how you can get directly involved in vital campaigns: to save the Great Barrier Reef, Divest from Fossil Fuels, and Protect the Leard Forest from Coal. We'll share skills, discuss our vision and prepare for further action.
And it doesn’t end here. When you join us on September 21, we’ll ask you to pledge to help Action win over Words by committing to exercise your political, consumer and grassroots power through these exciting campaigns.
