Take Action

Worried about the climate emergency? Joining a group is the first, most important step you can take. You will meet people who share your concerns and who will welcome your help in protecting our future. Of course - we would love you to join us at Darebin Climate Action Now. There are, however, many other groups, both within and outside Darebin doing great work. Why not do some exploring and find a group that suits you best? Then scroll down the page for some ideas on actions you can take.
