Our community in (climate) action

All around the world communities are coming together to build and fight for a sustainable and resilient future for our children. Here in the Blue Mountains we are a community who are passionately devoted to this cause.

We put out a call to our community to find out what climate action people are taking that they are proud of and what they feel they could do better with, these are the stories that have been shared so far.

We’d love to hear your story too.
