We’re thrilled to invite you to our first ever Online-A-Thon event on 1st October, launching our 2020 crowdfunder campaign!
Register below to receive a viewing link!
We have bold plans for next year and beyond.
Over the past few years, we've pioneered a new way of helping everyday Australians understand and act on climate change.
Our results have been remarkable when compared to other "face to face" engagement models. But our recent Impact Report shows we could do even better - we've consistently had more demand to host Conversations and train as a Conversation Facilitator than we've been able to meet.
So we've come up with an ambitious plan to meet that demand.
Our goal is to deeply engage and activate 40,000 people to act on climate in the next three years!
Your support is key in enabling us to do that.
That’s why we would love you to tune in and support our crowdfunder campaign at the 2020 Online-A-Thon on Thursday evening, 1st October!
By joining and supporting our event, you will play a crucial part in launching our campaign with the momentum we need to reach our ambitious goal of $190,000.
You can expect a night of remarkable entertainment as Judith Lucy, a renowned comedian, actress and author, will be our host!
Judith Lucy will be joined by inspiring speakers such as Simon Toohey, Masterchef finalist and founder of Sustainable Earth Network who will cook live for us during the event, Rebecca Huntley, leading social change researcher, and Damon Gameau, actor, director and producer for works including 2040 and That Sugar Film. Joelle Gergis, award-winning climate scientist and lead author of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment report, Sarah Wilson, best-selling author, journalist and TV presenter, Diana Nguyen, actor, comedian and creative entrepreneur, Felix Riebl, songwriter, composer and lead singer of Cat Empire, and Will Connolly (aka Egg Boy), who since famously protesting against Fraser Anning’s racist remarks about the Christchurch massacre, has gone on to raise funds and advocate for a range of important social justice and climate related causes.
We will also be joined by Chela, alternative-pop Australian/Filipino artist, and – for the fourth year in a row, back by popular demand! – Dr Hernandez, with their irresistible mix of electro cumbia, sweet reggae and old-school ska, with a shot of bugaloo.
We’re also excited to announce that financial advisers Ethical Investment Services, 100% carbon neutral energy provider Powershop, and customer owned B Corp certified Bank Australia will each donate $500 to get the night going. If we reach our goal of $15,000 on the night, they will donate further $2000 each (a grand total of $6,000)!
While this is a free event, we hope you will help us launch our campaign with a bang by donating to and/or sharing it with your networks.
Donations on the night of $100 or more will be eligible for beautiful thank you gifts generously provided by our sponsors: Aesop, Ahimsa Collective, Alpha60, Biome, Black Hearts and Sparrows, Crumpler, KLOKE, Gorman, Halcyon Nights and Mud. Additional thanks to Property Collectives who will be donating $1,000 as prizes for fundraising challenges on the night.

You can help inspire, engage and support more Australians to act on climate change and grow the climate movement by donating today.
While the support for climate action among Australians is at it’s all-time high, we still have a lot to do to harness the movement’s momentum to achieve urgent and meaningful action on climate change.
Your donation can help us create the social climate we need for effective climate action through deep, face-to-face conversations.
We are powered by thousands of people passionate about creating a safe climate - people like you. Whether it's $10, $100 or $1000, we appreciate your support immensely and wouldn't be able to continue growing the climate movement without you. Thank you.
You can also maximise your impact and donate monthly via this link.
