Over the past financial year, the Climate Council has focused on three strategic priorities:
1. Consistently communicate the localised impacts of extreme weather events and educate Australians on how they are influenced by climate change.
2. Build a strong narrative on solutions to climate change, capturing the public’s imagination on the possibilities of renewable energy and the need to rapidly transition away from fossil fuels.
3. In the absence of federal action on climate change, provide local councils and communities with the tools and skills to enact change from the bottom up.
To achieve these outcomes, we’ve written 94 publications, reached hundreds of millions of people through the media and worked alongside scientists, firefighters, health professionals, teachers, local governments and planners to make sure that climate change is front and centre.
