Green Music Australia
Green Music Australia works with musicians, festivals and venues to reduce the music scene’s environmental impact, and we mobilise around that action to drive deep social change. Through campaigns, tools, case studies and hands-on support, we help slash plastic waste, cut emissions from energy and transport, and support musicians to be advocates on vital issues. Because music opens hearts and minds to new ideas, and because musicians are such culturally influential people, the positive actions we facilitate have huge flow on effects to the wider community. With smart, strategic work, we are both directly protecting the environment and making it cool to be green.
The Watarrka Foundation's focus is on young people. They deliver programs that support a sustainable environment, education, healthy lifestyles and independent livelihoods for Aboriginal communities in the Watarrka region.
Share The Diginity
Share The Dignity collects thousands of pads, tampons and personal hygiene products every YEAR for women experiencing homelessness and poverty. Small dignities make a big difference. We fund funerals for victims of domestic violence and campaign for justice for women in Australia.
