During 2007, the Change Agency collaborated with the Queensland Conservation Council to support and energise Brisbane communities around climate change. Eight climate change campaigners keen for first-hand experience in community organising were recruited as The Big Switch campaign team. As well as being a timely project to galvanise pre-Election community action, it was an excellent opportunity to apply and further shape our community organising tools and frameworks.

Organising helps to build relationships and skills both within and between communities and the fellowship follows the same approach. The fellowship is essential for organisations that are working to build power within communities or considering making the leap into this work.
