Notice: Climate Action Blue Mountains is no longer an incorporated association, as of 1 April 2016. The committee took the difficult decision in 2015 to disband the formal organisation and pursue local climate action initiatives through other existing bodies, in particular the Blue Mountains Conservation Society. We encourage all existing supporters and interested individuals to join with the Consveration Society, Transition Blue Mountains and other local groups to pursue local action for a safe climate. We plan to maintain our Facebook page as a means of sharing information and promoting local climate action initiatives.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Climate Action BM (aka Katoomba Climate Action Now) over the years and helped make our campaigns, initiatives and events a success.

Thank you for your understanding.

Direct Action

Climate Action Blue Mountains supports the use of non-violent direct action as a tactic in the struggle to address the climate crisis.

To this end, we also support Climate Camp – currently the only mass direct action camp on climate change in Australia – and our members attended both Climate Camp 2009 (Helensburgh, NSW) and Climate Camp 2010 (Hunter Valley, NSW).

Climate Camps are held each year around the globe to raise awareness about climate change issues, explore sustainable living practices, build a strong people’s movement and take non-violent direct action to confront the root causes of climate change.

Climate Camp 2009 focused on the expansion of longwall mining at the Metropolitan Colliery and its impacts on Sydney’s water supply catchments. Find out more about the impact of mining on rivers here.

Climate Camp 2010 focused on the approved concept plans for a new 2,000 megawatt coal power station at the site of Australia’s equal biggest single source of pollution – Bayswater Power Station near Muswellbrook in the Upper Hunter Valley, NSW. Read more here.
