Organising Training Series Workshop of the fortnight: #7: Aug 1 - Visioning for the collective and movement
The most resilient, effective, intersectional movements have a strong sense of solidarity. This involves an awareness of what is happening in spaces other than those we are directly working in. The purpose of this workshop is to foster a stronger sense of solidarity in the work we envision and build on our understanding of social movements.
Act on Climate Collective
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.
