Community organising works
It’s been a long time since politicians cared what activists thought. With no one to hold decision-makers to account, they’ve been free to shrug their shoulders at international climate commitments. To shake hands, pose for photos and play dumb over the degradation of the ecosystems that support our lives.
But the rise of community organising around the world means that’s changing. Fast.
Here’s something our politicians can’t ignore.
- An organised movement that builds support from street level, up.
- Teams of persuasive, highly-trained environmental leaders, with the social networks, skills, tools and energy to hustle for change.
- Someone like you knocking on every door in their electorate and shaping the conversation.
- Especially at election time.

We’re training Australians like you to be tomorrow's environmental leaders.
Using tools and techniques honed in community organising programs across the world, we’ll reach new audiences and have empowering conversations about Australian nature — and the reasons we should all support life.
We plan to do this at a scale never seen before in Australian politics. To build power from street level, all the way up to the halls of Canberra. To make environmental issues into election-winning issues.
That’s how we convince politicians and decision-makers to protect the ecosystems our lives depend on.
What we’re doing
- We’ve already trained 1,000+ leaders to create change.
- Running regular training events and building our capacity.
- Constantly improving our knowledge, tools and resources.
- Drawing lessons from community organising around the world.
- Taking our movement nationwide.
