...for Climate Action and Sustainability in North Queensland

Individuals and communities around Australia and around the world are building momentum in their ability and capacity to respond to climate change.  Globally the transition from fossil fuels to renewables is underway.

The Paris Accord of December 2015 is significant.  There is now a global agreement uniting the world to meet the challenge of rapidly decarbonising our economies with a commitment to keep average global warming below 2 degrees C, and an ambition to keep it below 1.5 degrees C of warming.

ecoSAVVY, along with a diverse and rapidly growing number of individuals, organisations and communities around Australia is maintaining pressure on our elected representatives and inviting members of the community to build their awareness about what can be done to transition our economy towards one that utilises renewables, supports our communities to face the challenges (that climate change will bring) and embrace the opportunities that climate action will present.

What can I do about climate change?

This website contains inspiration and a range of useful resources for people who want to know how to:

  • live more sustainably 
  • design/build or retrofit a home 
  • actively support our community's transition to renewables and the new economy

It includes references to national organisations but is especially relevant to people in tropical North Queensland, Australia.

It is hoped that these resources will empower people in Townsville and North Queensland to becoming leaders in transitioning to a new economy and embracing sustainable ways.
