Description

Eastern Climate Action Melbourne (ECAM) is a community group of like-minded people passionate about restoring our world to good health where the most dangerous impacts of climate change have been avoided. We are located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, predominantly in the cities of Whitehorse and Maroondah. We seek to increase community awareness of what each of us can do in our own homes and businesses and to advocate for strong government action to reduce carbon emissions and create a safe climate now.

ECAM was formed in late 2013 when members of Get-Up who had worked together on the 2013 federal election identified their shared concern about climate change. Since then we have run a number of successful community forums (see previous events), have become incorporated, developed an extensive membership and ECAM News email list, work closely with other like-minded organisations and continue to strive to protect our precious earth.

Our Vision

A safe climate where the most dangerous impacts of global warming have been avoided, where our planet has been restored to pre-industrial health and where we and future generations live in a sustainable way.
