Gippsland Climate Change Network

Man, despite his artistic pretensions, his sophistication, and his many accomplishments, owes his existence to a six inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains”  Paul Harvey.

Our Vision

Gippsland is carbon neutral by 2040 with thriving communities, new industries, a resilient economy, healthy habitats, and sustainably managed resources.

Our Challenge

Engaging our community about the real and present threat of climate change impacts in Gippsland in ways that understand the science, promote partnerships, utilise our local expertise, and generate hope.

Who We Are

We are a Gippsland wide not-for-profit and registered charity focused on connecting and collaborating with local communities, businesses, and government organisations around climate change awareness and solutions.

News

Message from the Chair, Darren McCubbin: It has been a very strange time for us all, but like many organisations GCCN has pivoted to manage our meetings, programs, forums, and projects online. This has created challenges and opportunities and we will seek to hold on to the positives. Our switch to zoom meetings and webinars has created a more diverse and larger audience and we will continue to explore the medium even when restrictions are lifted. Having said that, we are looking forward to when we can network together in-person and are planning future forums.

We undertook a large survey amongst our network late last year and the learnings from that is informing our strategic planning for the organisation. Thanks to those who participated. Our new website is under construction and will be uploading more information and an online membership registration soon.  

Late last year we held a Zoom AGM and a new board of enthusiastic volunteers from across Gippsland were elected to continue to work towards Our Vision that Gippsland is carbon neutral by 2040 with thriving communities, new industries, a resilient economy, healthy habitats, and sustainably managed resources.
