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.

The Change Agency facilitated our two day intensive strategy workshop to bring together animal welfare and rescue groups from across Australia to set up a National Koala Alliance. James and Taya's facilitation of the workshop was absolutely brilliant and everyone came away with renewed enthusiasm and determination. James' extensive campaigning experience and strategic thinking provided invaluable guidance to this newly- formed alliance and we will continue to tap into his wealth of strategic advice as we go forward to protect koalas. Thank you!
