Learn about what’s going on and discover practical, simple steps to ease your existential dread and help fight the climate crisisLearn more
If you want to fix something, first you need to understand it.
The last 11,700 years on this earth have been characterised by a remarkably stable climate that has allowed humans to thrive.
We're pushing that climate (and ourselves) to the brink of extinction.
The good news is that as a species we're pretty good at figuring out tough problems once we put our collective minds to it.
Not only are the solutions to the climate crisis possible, they can actually help us build a healthier, more prosperous world.
The biggest thing you can do?
As individuals there's a lot we can do to fight the climate crisis, but there's some things we just can't do on our own. We need our governments (at every level) and businesses to drive the transition to a renewable economy.
That's why we want to build a diverse chorus of voices to show our leaders that there is support for climate action. That we are excited about this new, green future and will vote with our ballots and our dollars to support the transition.
So here's where you come in: we need you to start conversations about the climate crisis with your friends, family, pets and colleagues (and anyone else you can find). You don't need to convince anyone to completely give up meat or move off grid (unless they want to), it could be as simple as sharing a book recommendation or posting an exciting news update online.
So get your learning cap on, then start listening, talking and sharing. We’ve got everything you need to start those conversations here.
Pick your tools
If you're low on time, or just don't know where to start, let us do the hard work. We'll be sharing one easy and high impact activity every month that you can do to reduce your carbon footprint and help fight the climate crisis.
There'll be a different focus each month and we promise nothing too time consuming or expensive (in fact, some of our Power-ups will save you money!).
We've done the research, we just need your help to create the action. Follow us on social media or subscribe to our (totally non-spammy) newsletter below to stay up to date.
We don't know about you guys but we haven't quite figured out how to move our electricity grid to 100% renewables or build more public transport on our own.
We need bold, systemic change to make sure we hit our net-zero targets and luckily, there's still plenty you can do to push this change along.
While we wait for the people upstairs to get some of these big changes ticking over, there's still a heap that we can do on our own!
You don't have to live in a tiny off-grid hut (unless it's one of those cool Grand Designs ones) to save the planet, we've got plenty of simple actions that you can take to lower your own carbon footprint.
Project Planet is an online movement, aiming to raise awareness about not only the costs of inaction on climate change, but also the enormous economic, developmental and cultural opportunities that exist, if we actively pursue an ambitious plan to transform Australia into a global climate leader.
Project Planet aims to be a starting point for climate activism, making the movement more accessible and empowering tangible, effective action.
We aim to build a non-judgemental and inclusive space that provides an optimistic and exciting view of what's possible, without sugar-coating some of the challenges we are currently facing.
Develop easy to understand, sharable content about the risks of inaction on climate change and Australia's unique opportunities in acting ambitiously to reduce emissions.
Empower people to engage in meaningful climate action in their own lives, as well as through driving systemic change across government and business.
Provide a platform to facilitate a broader climate discussion through influencers and businesses.
Engage with the intersectionality of the current challenges facing our country and world, including the economic impacts of COVID-19, income inequality, systemic racism and women's rights.
Project Planet is run by a team of volunteers who live and work on the stolen lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation, the Wurrundjeri People of the Kulin Nation and the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation.
We would like to show our respects to the Traditional Custodians, to Elders past, present and emerging. We recognise their great knowledge and care of the lands and waterways we work and live on.
Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
We’re always looking for new volunteers to create content and help us spread the word!
