Support our Climate Justice Learning Fund
The Environmental and Climate Justice sector and space is predominantly occupied by White ideals and perspectives. This lack of inclusion and diversity means that First Nations and People of Colour occupying the Climate and Environment space face cultural unsafety, lack of leadership opportunities, microaggressions and outright exclusion.
Conservation Council acknowledges its role and responsibility to undertake growth and learning as an organisation to exemplify the values of justice, equity and inclusion.
Our first action towards this commitment is prioritising training and networking opportunities. Jahnavi, our Communications Manager and a Woman of Colour, is undertaking professional development with Democracy in Colour’s Climate Justice Program.
We campaign for a safe climate, to protect biodiversity in our urban and natural areas, to protect and enhance our waterways, reduce waste, and promote sustainable transport and planning for our city.
Working in the ACT and region to influence governments and build widespread support within the community and business, we put forward evidence-based solutions and innovative ideas for how we can live sustainably.
