Bid in the World Environment Day Online Auction and help us raise funds for our advocacy work.

With over 90 items to bid on, the auction has something for everyone. 100% of items are donated by our sponsors, so 100% of proceeds support our environmental work.

World Environment Day, the United Nations’ principal platforms to encourage action for our environment, is usually the occasion of our annual gala dinner and celebration of the environment. This year our gala dinner has been postponed.

More than ever, the Conservation Council depends on fundraising auctions like this one.

We campaign to cut greenhouse emissions, protect biodiversity in our urban and natural areas, protect and enhance our waterways, reduce our waste and improve urban sustainability, and improve public and active transport in our city. We also represent more than 45 member groups, collaborating to help make the ACT a hub of environmental action and progress.

When you bid in the auction you are helping protect the environment.

Go to the live auction.
