Transition Darebin and Friends of the Earth

In 2015, we actively collaborated with Friends of the Earth Melbourne (FoEM) on two campaigns. These were the ‘Green Pledge’ – a call for personal political and social climate action – and ‘Race to Preston Market’ – a fun event putting spotlight on local public transport issues.

A co-organised event with live bands and speakers drew around 50 people, helping generate momentum for the Green Pledge campaign. The campaign worked by getting people to take 5 climate actions over 1 week. These activities ranged from personal actions to directly reduce, like using public transport instead of driving, to more outreach efforts such as taking part in letter-writing campaigns. The ‘TD Green Pledge Team’ had a number of participants taking actions and raised much needed funds to help FoEM run their campaigns.
