Volunteer for a climate safe world

Australian volunteers with all sorts of skills are needed to help address the impact of climate change in our region.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time

Communities and organisations around the world are working to reduce the impact of climate change and identify ways to adapt to new climatic conditions. Australian volunteers are supporting some of these projects, and in ways you might not expect. Tackling climate change requires an incredibly broad range of skills and experience. 

Efforts to address climate change need to occur at the individual, local, national and global level. Australian volunteers have the unique ability to work at every level, often simultaneously.
