The Queensland Grassroots Climate Movement

A State network created in 2008 that aims to support grassroots climate action.


You may have reacted with anger and despair to the news of the Federal Government’s appalling emissions reduction target. You are not the only one! Let’s turn our collective will into powerful action that the Government cannot ignore. Australia’s Climate Action Summit has just concluded in Canberra, where hundreds of people from community climate action groups across Australia met together to set a strong climate campaign for 2009. It culminated on the first day of Parliament, when on the 3rd February 2009, more than 2,500 people from across the country formed a human chain encircling Parliament House.

Where to from here?
2009 is a critical year for climate policy. The Rudd honeymoon is over as the Government demonstrates that it is not listening to science or equity, but instead to big business and the heaviest polluters. Now more than ever, it is time to come together to build a strong, diverse people’s movement that creates the pressure on the Government to achieve the necessary action on climate change. For a future free from catastrophic climate change. >hosted by six degrees – taking climate change personally<< Most recent Preparing for the Queensland Election Telling the Truth Documentary & Forum Firefighters Union Call for Urgent Climate Action The Case of ‘Bimblebox Nature Refuge’ Queensland Climate Movement Meeting - 19th February Hamilton: The Time for Radical Activism Hepburn: Escalating climate action in 2009 Spratt: Bushfires and extreme temperatures in Australia Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream Report Backs from the National Climate Summit Climate Action News Farmers Dig In to Resist Coal in Queensland Climate Groups Unite for Direct Action and Civil Disobedience Against Coal Green lobby groups reject emissions trading scheme Climate of creative disobedience Climate campaigners encircle Parliament House Climate change campaigners not your stereotypical greenies Protest actions continue against Rudd government's targets Climate protests erupt across the country Power from the ground up More community coal forums Environmental concerns stall Traveston Dam Brace yourselves for climate protests, MPs told Climate Action Networks Queensland Climate Emergency Queensland Climate Six Degrees Join the National Network Are you part of a group working on climate change?
