Get ready for action!
The 2014 Community Climate Action Summit is coming to Brisbane this September 19th to 21st.
Communities, businesses, schools, universities, and industries all across Australia are looking past the political rhetoric to get on with the job of creating the kind of sustainable futures that we want to live in.

But fundamentally that means a fight against political corruption, and I believe that if we are to be effective as climate change campaigners we have to join forces with the political reformers …and massively boost that effort to reform campaign finance, to reform lobbying, to reform the corruption at the heart of our public life.”
George Monbiot from 2013 summit
Last year, over 500 people including scientists, engineers, health and other professionals, politicians, representatives from approximately 100 climate groups across Australia, and other concerned members of the public, attended the Community Climate Network’s 5th Australian Climate Action Summit in Sydney from 21 to 23 June, 2013.
This year’s theme is Opportunities and Solutions: How we in the community can bypass government and corporate obstacles, to get to effective climate action. It promises to be a breakthrough event that will share the new narrative of opportunity and positive action for ourselves and our planet.
We invite you to be involved, and to take the opportunity to engage with a wide cross-section of passionate individuals, exciting businesses, industry and professional bodies working to boost the transition to a clean energy, jobs-rich, healthy, thriving economy, and meaningful future for all of us.
This year’s Summit is branching out in some new directions. Major features will be:
