Effective local climate action

Lighter Footprints is a local climate group committed to leading effective climate action.

As a community based organisation working across Melbourne’s inner-east, we aim to educate, advocate and bring people together. We inform the community, create the momentum for change and influence Australian decision makers to take the action necessary to halt global warming as a matter of urgency.
