ccwa09 poster_04

We are organising Western Australia’s first ever Camp for Climate Action. Climate camp is taking place from December 17-21 in Collie, the heart of WA’s Coal industry. There are plans for the number of coal power stations in Collie to double. We are going to take action against this disastrous expansion. We would like you to come too! We would also like any help in organising the camp, for a full list of ways to help, see below.

For more information or to register your interest visit join us on facebook email or call Dom on 0415 258 301 or Mar on 08 9371 3791.

More About Camp For Climate Action

The Camp for Climate Action will be a convergence of people from all over WA and Australia who are determined to see real action on climate change. Australia is in a good position to switch to renewables and our failure to move away from coal is our society’s greatest climate crime. We need a just transition from coal to clean energy – not an expansion of the coal industry.

The five day camp will be a participatory and sustainable event, where people are invited to share, learn, plan and take action. As one of five climate camps happening in Australia, and over 20 across the world, it will be an inspiring gathering of people of all ages and from all walks of life coming together to take direct action for a living future.

A group of people will also be riding on the Munda Biddi trail from Perth to Collie, leaving on December 10 and arriving on December 17. For more info see the cycle for climate website or contact Regan on 0413 730 293 or David on 0449 001 108.

The organisers are a diverse range of individuals who share a passion for a sustainable future.

  1. I am coming down from Geraldton with my 16 month old boy. I am putting up your posters around town and trying to get a few of us going, maybe carpooling. If you know of anyone from up this way who wants to go, could you give them my email please.

  2. I can get an announcement read out on Radio Mamma, Mid West Indigenous Radio Station based here in Geraldton. What would you like them to say?
