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.

Cover the coal wagons

An average of approx. 8.4 full coal trains pass through Springwood each weekday, with an equal number of empty trains returning up the mountains. Monitoring in the Hunter Valley has demonstrated up to 3% of a load is lost in transport, polluting the soil & atmosphere in the local area. Please download this ‘Cover the Wagons’ petition and factsheet, get as many signatures as possible and return to Hunter Community Environment Centre by 16 March.
