The People's Climate Strategy for Victoria

In response to COVID-19 delaying the Victorian Government's preparation of the state's first Climate Change Strategy, Friends of the Earth Melbourne's Act on Climate collective launched a project to create a People's Climate Strategy in Victoria,

More than 1,000 community members and leaders gathered online to discuss the impact that climate change is having in the areas they live in and creative ways to tackle issues around climate change. By framing the issue as here and now, and including the personal stories of the community, the project engaged the support of multiple MPs.
