COMMUNITY CLIMATE ACTION
Worried about climate change? Want to know what you can do to help? You’re not alone! CAFNEC’s Our Climate Our Way of Life campaign in 2021/22 revealed that the majority of people in our community want the government to do more to address the climate crisis. CAFNEC is advocating for stronger policy commitments from our decision-makers to cut down on fossil fuel emissions and help communities adapt to climate impacts – you can read more about that here. But advocacy work takes time, so in the meantime…
Here’s what you can do RIGHT NOW:
- Become a CAFNEC volunteer to help us drive campaigns, projects, events and other actions in our work advocating for conservation and climate justice.
- Volunteer with one of CAFNEC’s member groups taking direct, on-ground action to restore ecosystems and protect vulnerable species.
- Organise your own community action – Get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in starting a local group or running an action like a creek clean-up, a rally, etc. Get creative!
