Our volunteers make it possible for our group to drive bold climate action in the outdoor community. Everyone in our team is a volunteer. No matter where you are in Australia (or even overseas) and whatever your skills and interests, there are opportunities for everyone to contribute.
Build our community
Our group is growing bigger every day and is perfect for anyone in Australia who loves the outdoors. To empower bold action in the outdoor community, we need to connect far and wide with as many outdoors people as possible. Together let's build our community, share the passion with others, and spread the word. Tell your mates, share our posters where outdoors people congregate or use social media to share our group with your network.
Ask an outdoor business to get active
We see the outdoor industries as climate-action leaders, role-modeling and calling for positive change. We're working with outdoor companies and organisations: outdoor education operators, outdoor tourism providers and outdoor equipment businesses. Ask your employer or favourite outdoors business to join our community by becoming a supporter. There's no fee, and it's a great opportunity to be a part of the solution.
