There are many ways to make the most of the festive season
There are many ways to make the most of the festive season

In the New Year, we’ll be announcing exciting, new, research and policy initiatives for addressing the challenges of change in 2018.

Being festive doesn't mean we can't be also responsible and effect positive change.

Try one or more of the following initiatives. Or suggest some of your own via Facebook or Twitter.

  • COLLECT, recycle or refuse unnecessary gift-packaging as much as possible.
  • HELP out your local bush-rehabilitation group.
  • REJECT single-use plastic.
  • INSTALL solar panels.
  • SUPPORT carbon-reduction strategies and policies.
  • TAKE-up bike riding
  • MAKE your house glitter-free in 2018 (<micro plastic).
  • ASK yourself: “What can I do to reduce my burden on the local environment?”
  • SEND a message to your local member of parliament that you support efforts to protect the Great Barrier Reef.

Please note: the Global Change Institute closes for the holiday break on 23 December. Administrative services will resume Monday, 8 January 2018.
