people making a difference around climate change

This section introduces you to everyday people from across southern Adelaide who are making a difference around climate change. We've also included a few friends from around Australia and the world too!

To add your profile to our Resilient South Wall of Fame, tell us what you've been up to and we'll be in touch.

Climate change is a people problem. Climate change is caused by people and it will be people that solve it. It is not going to be science that solves it. It will be people of all different disciplines.

“We’ve got to stop burning fossil fuels. So many aspects of life depend on fossil fuels, except for music and love and education and happiness. These things, which hardly use fossil fuels, are what we must focus on.”
