Monday 31st of January - Wednesday 2nd of February | Ngunnawal and Ngambri country, Canberra
Power through Collaboration: CANA's National Climate Conference is a three-day event for organisations and individuals committed to climate action. This conference will bring together Australia’s biggest network of organisations acting on climate change, CANA's 130 member groups, who work together to build collective power and connect diverse sectors and interests to slash greenhouse gas emissions in Australia in this critical decade.
Held in the Nation’s capital, on unceded Ngunnawal and Ngambri country, and during the first parliamentary sitting week of the year this will be a key opportunity for the climate movement to come together at a critical moment for climate action. This conference is a chance to learn together , deepen connections across the climate action community and influence the direction of our movement. The conference will also communicate clearly to our federal leaders: this is the decisive decade for action on climate change and our organisations are a powerful collective, representing millions of Australians, who demand stronger action on climate change.
This year Climate Action Network Australia will also take a moment to celebrate our 21st year. This anniversary is a time to reflect on the last two decades, on the challenges faced by groups committed to progress on climate policy, and to look forward with hope to the next revolutionary decade.
After a prolonged period of virtual connection, Power through Collaboration will also be an opportunity for CANA member groups to come together in-person, reconnect with friends and colleagues, build new allies and hear of the many new developments and collaborations across the movement. Meeting together in Canberra will be an opportunity to grow the movement and continue to build momentum into the decisive decade. While we encourage participants to attend in-person there will also be an option for virtual attendance.
We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the Canberra region which has been home to the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples for more than 20,000 years. Their sovereignty has never been ceded. We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture. We would also like to acknowledge and welcome other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who may be attending this conference.
