Citizens’ Climate Lobby Australia is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy and education association focused on climate solutions
In order to generate the political will necessary for the passage of effective climate solutions legislation – including an Australian Carbon Fee and Dividend – we train, support and provide the tools for volunteers to engage with Members of Parliament, the media and the public.
Citizens Climate Lobby Australia started in 2014.
We have members in 130 of the 150 House of Representatives electorates and in every state and territory. We are part of the global organization, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which was founded in the USA in 2007 and has groups in Canada as well as in 28 countries across Africa, Europe, UK, Asia and Central America.
The Citizens’ Climate Education portal archives a vast library of training and other resources, including discussion groups, podcasts and videos.
The first step to access and receive updates is to join and you will be sent links, a newsletter subscription and a login to the CCL Community.
Live and recorded training sessions are offered by our local and our global colleagues in many aspects of lobbying, letter-writing, media, forming and managing groups, interviewing skills, personal development and much more.
All members of the public, supporters, members and volunteers are invited to attend all or some of our meetings – local Monthly Meetings (contact your regional coordinator) , and also our online Monthly Meeting with Guest Speaker and our monthly National Conversation.
The sender of the CCL Australia newsletter is: firstname.lastname@example.org – we suggest you add it to your contacts so the newsletter arrives in your inbox rather than in spam or promotions.
We have a very active facebook group where members and team leaders connect to share tips, news and opinions – CCL members and supporters alike are welcome to request to join. We appreciate likes and shares at the CCL Australia facebook page – @citizensclimatelobbyaustralia – and we tweet as Citizens Climate Au – @CCL_Au and support #PutAPriceOnIt.
Conferences, Lobby Days and Training
We have held four National Conferences in Canberra, in 2015, 2016, and 2017 each followed by 2 days of lobbying in Parliament House, Canberra. In 2018 we will hold our fifth National Conference on 15 and 16 September, with our first Western Australian and New South Wales / ACT regional conferences in March and June. All welcome to attend – register here.
At CCL Australia lobby days our volunteers meet as many Members of Parliament and/or their advisers as is possible within 2 busy days.
There we share our preferred solution of Carbon Fee and Dividend; hear MP’s views on climate and energy policies, now and in the future; and, in the process establishing common ground.
These lobby days meetings then lead to opportunities for subsequent meetings with MPs and staff in electorates. This fulfills our objective of developing relationships and searching for common ground on climate stewardship.
We would like to be able to meet every MP in 2018 and 2019. So CCL Australia is busy planning training, conferences and lobby days in state capitals and in Canberra. All welcome to attend – register here.
