About membership

Join us!

By joining the Climate Action Network you will link into Australia’s biggest network of organisations working to confront the climate crisis. You’ll be supported to share information about your campaigns and activities and to link with others working on the issues you are passionate about.

Membership of the Network is open to any not for profit organisation or educational institution of any size and legal form. Membership contributions are progressive based on the size of your organisation and the level of involvement you want to have with the network.

Why join the Network?

By joining the Network, you’ll become part of a vibrant community committed to building a movement powerful enough to achieve the action on climate change we need. You’ll form lasting relationships across sectors, be given access to resources and infrastructure, have the opportunity to join or spark collaborative campaigns, and be invited to strategy meetings, gatherings, and our annual conference.

There are many benefits to membership of the Network, but your membership contribution is also an investment in partnership and collaboration on climate - something Australia and the world needs more than ever.

We have two types of membership - Committed to Leadership or Regular -  depending on how you’d like to be involved. The benefits of each type of membership are outlined below.
