Green Cross empowers people to respond to environmental change. Our programs build community resilience and provide active education for a new generation of environmental leaders. Green Cross catalyses change working with partners and web based tools that are connecting with audiences around the world.
Green Cross Australia motivates people to take life changing journeys. We work with partners to deliver world class digital projects that inspire Australians to take practical, informed actions towards a safe and sustainable world.
Shifting our energy mix
The planet's population is expected to grow from 6 billion to 9 billion over the next 50 years. By 2050, we will need twice as much power as we use today. Unless this power comes from renewable sources, the planet’s climate could get much hotter.
Green Cross Australia creates programs that educate, inspire and empower the next generation of young Australians about our precious environment. Our projects are curriculum aligned and designed by environmental educators.
Disaster resilience: preparedness and recovery
We do a lot of work around preparation for and recovery after natural disasters, and building community resilience, as well as environmental education. The reality is, our climate is changing, and natural disasters are becoming more severe. They will impact on our future, so understanding the issues and getting involved now is heartening to see.
Green Cross Australia is helping people adapt to our changing climate in ways that embrace energy efficiency and sustainability.
A natural disaster occurs. People and communities are affected, often in the worst imaginable ways. But what happens next and how are citizens of disaster-affected areas engaged in decision-making regarding rebuilding their communities and recovering their lives?
As part of a global network, Green Cross Australia is involved in several important projects around the world. Find out more about our international projects here.
The Dalai Lama in Australia
If Green Cross is able to inspire one single Australian leader towards a shift in personal values - we will be that much closer to achieving our mission of a secure and sustainable future. Green Cross Australia formed a partnership with Dalai Lama in Australia to support our first Values Leadership event in what will become an annual series.
