Sector Working Groups

The Better Futures Australia community is supported by a growing number of Sector Working Groups co-convened by a network of partner organisations. These Groups are working closely with the Better Futures Australia team to design and deliver a range of engagement, climate action and joint advocacy activities in the lead up to the Glasgow climate conference.

Each group plays a critical role in driving climate action by coordinating collaborative efforts within their industry sectors and communities and connecting in new and existing climate champions to build cross-sectoral networks for scaling further actions. Watch this short video to hear from some of our excellent group convenors about their plans to drive ambitious climate action this year.
