Advocating for strong local action

The Port Phillip Emergency Climate Action Network is an alliance of local environmental groups who aim to create and sustain a strong climate action movement in Port Phillip to address the climate crisis.

Port Phillip’s bayside location makes it especially prone to the impacts of this climate emergency. Its citizens are also amongst Australia’s most progressive when it comes to recognising the climate crisis and issues of environmental sustainability.
