What is Climate Action Week Sydney?

Climate Action Week Sydney is powered by the people of Sydney, allowing individuals from any part of the community to host their own events independently while leveraging the mission, platform, brand, and audience of CAW.SYD to enhance their impact.

By tapping existing climate initiatives and encouraging all of our community to participate, we seek to elevate Sydney’s role in global climate discussions, initiatives, and impact-oriented action.

The featured events run for one week each year, but the connections, conversations, and actions happen every day, and will continue to deliver climate action impact.

What is climate action?

we've identified 5 pillars of climate action


Dive into the world of greenhouse gas emissions, uncover the realities of climate change, and explore the dynamic actions we can take to make a difference. Knowledge is power, and by understanding these critical issues, we're taking the first step towards a brighter, more sustainable future.

Inspire change

Through the power of policy reform, compelling storytelling, and passionate advocacy, we can spark a wave of behavioural transformation. It's about creating a movement where every story told and every voice heard fuels the fire of positive change.

Reduce emissions

Embrace the cutting-edge climate tech solutions and adopt practices that cut down our greenhouse gas emissions. It's about making smarter choices every day to pave the way for a greener planet.

Remove emissions

Actively work towards cleansing our atmosphere by naturally and technologically removing existing greenhouse gases. This dual approach is our secret weapon in reversing the tide against climate change.

Adapt & build resilience

As our climate evolves, so must we. By building resilience, we prepare ourselves to not just survive but thrive in the face of changing climates. It's about adapting our ways of life, our communities, and our world to not just withstand the challenges but emerge stronger.
