⏰ 6.00 – 7.00pm AEST

📍 Online

At this special briefing you’ll hear:

  • Why it’s critical that community groups start work now to prepare for the next federal election
  • How early funding for the most promising community groups across the country is a powerful way to turbocharge their campaigns and give them the best chance of success
  • What Climate 200 has learned from supporting 60+ local community campaigns to scale their efforts
  • Why we know the most effective lever for turbocharging climate action and political integrity is to empower local, ground-up, community-driven leadership.

Climate 200 Executive Director, Byron Fay, will host the event and unpack our plan to help campaigns win. He’ll be joined by special guests with tonnes of experience:

  • Allegra Spender, the Independent Member for Wentworth, former local business leader and renewable energy advocate, will speak about what it’s like running as an independent – and winning, and what a powerful Independent crossbench can achieve in Parliament.

  • Katerina Gaita, a successful community builder and organiser, was instrumental in setting up ‘Voices of Goldstein’ and helping the award-winning foreign affairs correspondent, Zoe Daniel, win in the Melbourne seat of Goldstein.
