Climate 200 was born out of the realisation that we cannot stand on the sidelines and let climate science denial and vested interests delay meaningful action on climate change.
We are a non-profit established in the lead up to the 2019 federal election by a group of concerned Australians who want to see more political representatives with the courage and vision to seize the incredible economic opportunity decarbonisation presents to Australia.
We also strongly believe that the growing lack of accountability and integrity that has damaged our democratic institutions needs to be urgently addressed.
In 2019 we raised nearly $500,000 in donations and backed 12 values-aligned candidates, including Helen Haines, Kerryn Phelps, Rebekha Sharkie, Julia Banks, and Oliver Yates.
The experience taught us a lot. We're using the lessons learnt to take our impact to the next level.
