Citizens’ Climate Lobby Australia is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy and education association focused on accelerating climate solutions.
In order to generate the political will necessary for the passage of effective climate solutions legislation we train, support and provide the tools for volunteers to engage with all Members of Parliament, the media and the public. Our key legislative proposal is for an Australian Carbon Fee and Dividend, a climate policy that can accelerate climate solutions while being equitable.
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 organisation, 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 your new dashboard at the international 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.
CCL Australia has a very active facebook group where supporters, members parliamentary liaisons 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 and #AusCarbonDividend
Conferences, Lobby Days and Training
We have held a number of national and regional Conference and Lobby Days events in Canberra and the state capital cities, each including 1-2 days of training followed by MP meetings in Parliament House and in electorate offices.
At CCL Australia lobby days our volunteers meet as many Members of Parliament and/or their advisers as is possible.
There we share CCL’s preferred solution of Carbon Fee and Dividend; advocate for a Parliamentary Friends of Climate Solutions, and most importantly hear and note MP’s views on climate and on climate solutions policies.
These ‘lobby days’ meetings then lead to opportunities for subsequent meetings with MPs and staff in electorates. This simple task fulfils our objective of developing relationships and searching for common ground on climate stewardship.
CCL would like to be able to meet every MP in 2019 and 2020. So CCL Australia is always busy planning training, conferences and lobby days in state capitals as well as in Canberra.
