Champion: a person who vigorously supports or defends a person or cause

Our Climate Council Champions play a crucial role in powering our strategic interventions and priority projects. By making a significant annual contribution of $1,000 or more to the Climate Council, our Champions are amplifying diverse voices in the national climate conversation, supporting us to call out misinformation and influencing climate policy at the state and local level.

Funding from Climate Champions gives us the certainty we need to plan ahead and develop ambitious new projects, like our new Cities Power Partnership. We can only be ambitious in tackling climate change because we have champions committed to powering our impact.

Champions Exclusive Resources

Gas Campaign Webinar

In mid-2020, the Climate Council launched a targeted campaign to drive Australia’s transition away from gas. In this webinar, our Champions were joined by Campaigns Director Alix Pearce and Campaigner Louis Brailsford who outlined the Climate Council’s strategy and presented an update on the challenges and successes we’ve had working to increase Australians understanding of gas as a polluting and expensive fossil fuel.

Summer Outlook Webinar

To end 2020, we held one final Champions webinar focused on the summer weather outlook. Climate Council Researcher Dr Simon Bradshaw took us through what weather we can expect to see across Australia this summer, and importantly what forces are driving these conditions. Drawing on her experience as a former Deputy Commissioner and Chief Executive of Fire & Rescue NSW, Rosemary Milkins shared her learnings on why we react to emergency situations in the way that we do and how best to prepare ourselves in the face of bushfires, floods and storms.
