In 2021, Climates launched several new programs to support Pacific climate resilience, while elevating frontline communities. Our team of volunteers piloted the Micro Grants Programme funding 10 projects in five different Pacific Island Countries. We formalised the Climates Services. We fundraised tens of thousands of dollars for Pacific partners in Fiji, Vanuatu and Tuvalu. We continued to elevate diverse perspectives on climate justice through social media, and our Pacific Voices Blog.
In addtion to these new programs, we supported 350 Pacific and the Pacific Climate Warriors, The Pacific Islands Climate Action Network (PICAN) and the Tuvalu Association of Non-Governmental Organisations (TANGO) with their critical engagement, advocacy and leadership at COP26 in Glasgow. This has included close and direct support for these organisations by many of our volunteers.
Climates operates on a shoestring budget but we do have some small operational costs that we need to raise each year. Because of COVID, we have not been able to run any fundraising events over the last two years. We decided to sell Gift Cards to showcase Australian and Pacific artists and raise awareness about climate change at the same time. All artworks have been donated by artists.
Artists include: Christian Bonett, Folole Tupuola, Guy Ritani, Hannah Della Bosca, Kelly Wallwork, Laura Jones, Libby Doughty, Max Blackmore, Stefani Helena, and Uriam Amoon.
Is your mate a Climates teammate? if so, please let us know and we’ll get them to pass these to you first-hand. We also offer free delivery in inner-city Melbourne suburbs.
Alternatively, we can post to you at a flat rate of $5 Australia-wide, $10 Internationally. Postage fees have been included in the prices. Please indicate your preference and include your address as you checkout.
Our cards are printed locally on 100% recycled card with environmentally friendly inks and toners, then they come to you in recycled packaging too.
Thank you for your support and we hope you have a restful and peaceful end of year. Special thanks to all of our amazing artists!
