Our vision is an empowered Oceania working together towards a sustainable future in the face of climate change.
In pursuit of our vision, we work with communities across The Pacific to implement projects that help realise local visions of climate resilience; and facilitate partnerships that mobilise financial, material and human resources in support of community-led action on climate change.
We want to see communities become more resilient to the increasingly complex and devastating impacts of climate change.
We support community-driven responses to climate change across The Pacific.
Climates has three pillars:
- Supporting our partners in the Pacific with access to funds through crowdfunding and grant provision
- Elevating Australian and Pacific voices, experiences and stories on climate change, climate action and climate justice
- Supporting Pacific resilience through capacity-building and research activities for and with our Pacific partners
Climates is based on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country also known as Naarm (Melbourne), Australia. But our focus is on the Pacific Islands where we have been working with our Pacific mates since 2015. We collaborate with Pacific peoples and organisations to elevate the voices of those who experience the most significant consequences of climate change in the region.
