A Total Fire Ban and Harvest Vehicle Movement Ban have been declared for Thursday 2 February 2023, in the Shire of Augusta Margaret River. More information here.

The Shire is committed to playing a lead role in reducing emissions from our community to reach net zero emissions by 2030. In order to reach this target, we all have a role to play and we need your help! 

Climate Conversations are informal discussions that aim to bring about meaningful action on climate change through ordinary Australians. Having quality conversations about climate change in a relaxed environment helps build social connections and generates momentum to achieve effective climate action. 

The Shire has partnered with not-for-profit organisation Climate for Change to train facilitators in leading Climate Conversations within our community. We are currently calling for host and facilitator volunteers, who will be supported to lead transformative discussions that inspire our local community to stand up on climate change. 

You don't need to be a climate change expert! If you are a good listener, passionate about making a difference, and looking for something meaningful and fun to do - climate action is a conversation away!

Having quality conversations about climate change is one of the most effective things we can do to stop it. Volunteer facilitators are key to making these conversations happen at a scale large enough to really shift the social climate on climate change in the South West.

Climate Conversations start with a host, who invites friends to their home. A trained facilitator will lead the conversation - presenting information, answering questions and facilitating a discussion about climate change. At the end of the conversation, guests are invited to collaborate and take further action. Guests are also invited to host their own Climate Conversation with their friends, to help create a groundswell of support for climate action in the South West.
