Woor-dungin

Woor-Dungin’s vision is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their rich culture to be acknowledged, valued and embraced by Australian society.
Woor-Dungin is a coalition of Indigenous organisations, philanthropic trusts and foundations, pro-bono service providers and community groups working in partnership to enable Indigenous organisations to achieve self determination and access the resources and support needed to address issues affecting their communities. The purpose of Woor-Dungin is to increase resources, build strong partnerships and share knowledge to fulfil the purpose of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations. We strengthen the capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander organisations through training, mentoring/support and provision of comprehensive website resources.

Yarra Campaign for Action on Transport

YCAT is a community coalition of individuals and local groups concerned about the proposed East West Link impacts in Abbotsford, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Carlton, Carlton North and Clifton Hill. After a strong community campaign, in 2015 the project was officially cancelled. We are now campaigning for a train line to Doncaster and better public transport. Our focus is networking, skills and information sharing, although there are numerous individuals, local organisations and members of several political groups who are involved with this campaign, working towards improvements to Melbourne's public transport, and against the proposed East West Link. We warmly welcome anyone with these shared goals to become involved with our group.

You can also take action – please inform all your family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, school & friends about what is planned in our suburbs.

YCAN - Yarra Climate Action Now

Yarra Climate Action Now is a grassroots community group in inner-city Melbourne made up of people who want to see much stronger action on climate change. We are pushing for the urgent worldwide action needed to avoid runaway climate change and the associated impacts. We are interested in the possibility of making a difference in the community through education, lobbying, workshops and other activities. We are part of the Climate Emergency Network and a national network of grassroots climate action groups. This site will be a place for us to talk about climate change issues, exchange ideas, link to information and hopefully open a world of possibilities.

Please feel free to ask questions or make suggestions - community input is always appreciated! You can email us if you would like to: know more about YCAN or join our announcements list; learn more about climate change issues and solutions; get involved in events (in a small or large way); gain or share some knowledge or skills; check out our general meetings (second Wednesday evening of the month in Fitzroy).

Youth Food Movement

Youth Movement aim to build the skills, knowledge and experience that young people have around food. We run food education projects for young people regarding the challenges facing farmers, the basics of how food grows and how it reaches our plate, and how to interpret labels and cook nutricious meals. Through this we build a generation of people that are healthier, more connected to our food and land, and better able to support farmers without it costing us the earth. Knowing where your food comes from matters.

If you’re ready to do something real, something that feels good not only because it’s fun, but also because you’re building the world you want to live in, we’d love to have you as part of the YFM community. Apply online to become an event volunteer or leadership team volunteer in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane.
