WHY WE EXIST: “We started this group after the 2019 bushfires…..we just felt we needed to do something. So we invited friends and colleagues to get to together monthly. We started off in the lounge room but when COVID hit, we shifted to zoom meetings. All of a sudden, people could join us from anywhere, which has ended up being great. So now we have members across four states, and as far away as the UK. Our philosophy is that anyone is welcome, there is no pressure but lots of support and positivity about the changes that need to happen. Because many members are professionals, one way we want to make a big difference is by using our influence and networks, to garner support and action to address climate change.” Stephen Moir and Carolyn Loton, founders
