About Climate for Change

Climate for Change (C4C) is a volunteer-powered not-for-profit. Our mission is to create the social mandate in Australia for effective action on climate change. Our work is based on social research that shows people process information - make sense of it, make decisions about it and take actions around it - through conversations with people they trust.

The Valley is now facing huge economic, technological and cultural changes, that go beyond the shutdown of Hazelwood. How the community manages these changes will affect their daily lives, community connections, and future economic opportunities.

How will the program benefit you?

  • Receive formal training in many aspects around how to have challenging conversations, building value-based personal narrative, conflict resolution, community engagement and adaptive leadership skills among other things
  • Gain valuable practical experience facilitating conversations across the Latrobe Valley which explore the big questions around energy transitions and climate change
  • Build cross-disciplinary skills and experiences that will benefit your study, work, and personal development
  • Be a part of something rewarding that will make a meaningful difference within the community
  • Access support and networking opportunities
  • Meet and work with like­-minded people, making lifelong friends and connections


C4C was awarded a Climate Innovation Grant from the Department of Land Water and Planning, and Impact Funding from Bank Australia to coordinate a community co-designed program. The program is currently available for free due to funding, but possible future program opportunities may not be.
