Starter Cultures and Partnerships: the Newcastle Climate Change Response model
Newcastle Climate Change Response is a ground-breaking interdisciplinary phenomenon that arose from Newcastle Law School’s Narratives of Climate Change Conference in 2018. By combining in a new way a range of cutting-edge social change “technologies” both Australian and international (for example new ways with social media (e.g. #blacklivesmatter); the notion of a declaration and a Big Hairy Audacious Goal; “daisies” and rhizomatic organising; the Lismore Helping Hands Flood Response Facebook group and “the Bentley Effect”), University staff and students working with community members have successfully reactivated diverse communities in Newcastle to engage with climate change, including those not previously active.
What we are
NCCR is possibly different from what you might expect in a "local action group" - We are all about organic collective action as chosen by each of us, and empowering ourselves and everyone we know who is determined to stop climate change to do just that! Second, while we know that local and personal action is essential so that we can know we are doing our own individual part, our focus and context is intentionally and firmly global: Australia needs to be part of global action on this issue.
Please note that NCCR in connecting with the diverse groups and communities is bound by the principles of nonviolence, inclusion and relationality but is not responsible or liable for the actions of these groups.
