Yarra Climate Action Now

Represented by Sarah Deasey, Secretary

Answer

How does your organisation address climate change?

Yarra Climate Action Network (YCAN) is a community volunteer group based in the City of Yarra which campaigns for urgent action on climate change. Our members live or work in Yarra.

Our focus has been on action at council level. We regularly attend council meetings, to ask questions and make submissions to council. YCAN was instrumental in having Yarra declare a climate emergency, and in the development of the Climate Emergency Plan. We represented on formal and informal committees and working groups.

What is your organisation doing to create a better future?

We are committed to seeing Yarra, Victoria and Australia "Getting off Gas".
