Community for climate change

In a push to better understand how the community sector currently engages with climate change, the Australian Council of Social Service has launched a survey
With Australia’s slow transition to zero emissions and climate change disproportionately impacting people already experiencing a level of disadvantage, the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) is pushing for stronger advocacy from the sector.
ACOSS has launched its Climate Change and Community survey in order to better understand the role the community sector can play in influencing the federal government to set more ambitious emissions targets.
The survey aims to gather information around how the community sector currently engages with climate change, the appetite to engage in greater advocacy on climate change and what additional supports would be needed to help with further engagement.
ACOSS will use the results to inform how it can better support the community sector and ways in which it can bring everyone together to demand a faster, fairer and more equitable response to the climate crisis.
You can take the 10-15 minute survey here.
