About Climates
Climates facilitates partnerships and conversations that enable community-led responses to the cause and impacts of climate change across the Australia-Pacific region.

Our vision is an empowered Australia-Pacific region working together towards a sustainable future in the face of climate change.

We want to see vulnerable communities become more resilient to the increasingly complex and devastating impacts of climate change; Australians taking stronger personal and collective action to drastically cut their contributions to global greenhouse gas emissions; and more people across our region feeling empowered to advocate for stronger climate policies from local, national and international leaders. 

We are inspired by the incredible resilience and courageous leadership of frontline communities across our region, and the work of countless people who are pursuing sustainable, just alternatives to the social and economic systems which are the historic and ongoing cause of climate change.

Climates works in the Australia-Pacific region, supporting communities that are building local resilience to climate impacts, and engaging everyday people in conversations about how we can, individually and collectively, address the cause and impacts of climate change.
