  • The Yarra Valley Climate Action Group (YVCAG) is a Climate Action Group of concerned citizens based in the beautiful Yarra Valley in Melbourne, Australia. The Yarra Valley Climate Action Group (YVCAG) is composed of citizens from various walks of life who are deeply concerned about the threat to Humanity and the Biosphere in general from man-made global warming arising from greenhouse gas pollution.
  • We attempt through a variety of creative actions to INFORM others about the Climate Emergency and Sustainability Emergency facing the Planet and to suggest sensible, workable and timely SOLUTIONS to fellow citizens, including Government at the Local, State and Federal level. We have linked ourselves with a national Australian umbrella association, the Climate Emergency Network (CEN), with which many other Australian Climate Action Groups are now associated. Our position in relation to the Climate Emergency are those of the Climate Emergency Network (CEN) as set out in CEN News and reproduced below (for further details and very useful links see: http://www.climateemergencynetwork.org/ ).

    Hi. I want to join the Yarra Valley Climate Action group, being an active conservationist living in Heidelberg, and very anxious to take action on climate change, species loss, and other problems.

    I tried to register but when I pressed the button to register nothing happened.

    Please let me know how I can register.

    Thanks, Therese

    This is a worthwhile portal encouraging more powerful and effective climate evaluation for change. I support it and like groups that benefit both community and environment. You can submit notices with art for free exposure in the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges regions to promote just causes. Details on the link to my site and look for “Community” in the sidebar links.
