Now is the time for action.

Yarra Climate Action Now! is an independent community group based in the City of Yarra. Our mission is to strengthen the City of Yarra’s commitments to the climate emergency by advocating for and demonstrating effective climate action. Join us in our fight for a safer and sustainable local community.
The Climate Reality

The climate crisis may feel daunting, but we can do something about it. We’ve proven we know how to make an impact and people are winning on a range of environmental issues in their communities around the world. 


Lobbying by YCAN was influential in the City of Yarra’s declaration of a Climate Emergency in 2017 and the formulation of its first Climate Emergency Plan in 2020. Our actions can make a difference locally and globally.
