Reflection involves analysis. And action research begins with reflection.
As this action research project kicked off, we did some preliminary mapping of the climate action movement. As the project has unfolded, we’ve learnt that it’s almost impossible to keep pace. There are literally hundreds of existing and planned campaign activities around the country, and new climate action groups every week.
To map these initiatives, we set up a wiki website where climate campaigners can list, describe and analyse instances of community action. Two other sites that allow a birds-eye view of the movement are linked below: the climatemovement.org site with links to many of Australia’s climate action groups and the excellent Sourcewatch page listing recent direct actions targeting the coal industry.
