The Climate Change Exchange helps organisations and individuals understand and address climate change challenges in the context of other complex societal and environmental issues. Committed to climate justice, our work aims to foster transformational change towards a sustainable, fair future.
This work requires a lot more than just communicating or translating science and research. It demands genuine collaboration and co-production through networked, respectful relationships. The Exchange therefore works to connect, support, and harness the collective skills, efforts, and knowledge of many organisations and individuals to more effectively address our shared climate change challenges and actively move toward that sustainable, fair future.
Established in 2019 with seed funding from RMIT University’s Urban Futures Enabling Capability Platform, the Victorian Government’s Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, in partnership with eight local governments, the Exchange is a not-for-profit, multi-sector network of practitioners and researchers supports partnership building among different groups and organisations. It provides a central accessible place for organisations, networks, and individuals to connect, learn, and share. The Exchange can help address specific questions, as well as provide guidance, advice, connections, and case studies.
