Community Action - What is this

Community Action is how people in the greater Ballarat region  engage in environmental activities.

Within BREAZE this is usually done within Action Groups.  

Our major Action Groups are:

  • Advocacy - putting climate action on the public agenda
  • Social Solar - fund-raising to put rooftop solar on the buildings of not-for-profits
  • Sustainable Living - a public education program about what we can all do to help fight climate change
  • Community Forum - talks and events enabling public discussion of old and new approaches to dealing with anthropogenic climate change.

Our Action Groups are formed by members of BREAZE partaking in community actions in an area they are particularly interested in.   These may be ongoing activities like Local Food or a one off activity like a film screening.

There are also affiliated groups.   These are groups run semi independently from BREAZE but under the auspice of BREAZE.  These groups gain the benefits of BREAZE incorporation including insurance, marketing and other BREAZE resources.  

For more information read our Q&A or contact regarding setting up an affiliated groups.
