Climate for Change

Sunday, 13 October 2019 - 3:30pm

Worried about climate change but not really sure what to do about it? Talking and acting with your peers can help.

Climate for Change is a people-powered not-for-profit organisation on a mission to achieve meaningful climate change action on a national level. We do this by helping people have better conversations about climate change, and by supporting them so they can take effective action.

Over the past four years, we grew from an idea to a community of thousands of people, having more than one Climate Conversation in somebody's living room every day. But to have the climate action we need in Australia, we need to be reaching even more people. To be able to fund the further growth of our program, we are fundraising this October. We would love for you to join us!

We're looking for volunteers who will fundraise with us in our annual participation in the Melbourne Marathon. We have something for all levels of fitness - from a 10km run to the full 42km marathon or 3km walk (yes, that's an option too!).

No prior fundraising experience is required - our team will train you and provide you with all the support and resources you need. The only thing we'd like you to have is readiness to have fun, get fit and make a meaningful difference in accelerating climate action in Australia!

Register your interest today and we'll be in touch with the details so we can start getting ready for this exciting challenge!

PS. You don’t have to be based in Melbourne to join the team - there are plenty of other runs happening across the country in October such as the Toohey Trail Run in Queensland. Last year one of our fundraisers ran in New South Wales dressed as a polar bear. Run for Change
