This survey maps the Australian climate movement ecosystem to identify what we are working on as a movement, how and with what levels of resourcing. This will give us a clearer picture of movement focus, skills, strengths and also potential gaps we may want to address.

The survey is designed to gather information about your organisation, the campaigns you are involved in, and how you connect with others in the climate movement.

The survey contains questions grouped into three sections:
Part 1: Climate advocacy - what is the work you do
Part 2: Organisations - your organisation
Part 3: Networks - how you work with others

One survey should be completed per organisation/ group so you may need to pick one person to respond on behalf of the organisation and consult with others to gather the information for each question. If an organisation has multiple sub-groups, these groups can complete the survey separately, if in doubt please contact us for more information.

Some organisations may be able to complete the survey in around 30 minutes. Others may take longer and/or require time to consult internally in their organisation to gather information before completing the survey.

You can download a copy of the questions here to prepare your responses before completing the survey. You can also save the survey and return to complete it at a later date. Responses are saved for each page once you click "next". To access saved responses, use the same device and web browser you used to start the survey. If you clear your browsing data or delete cookies between sessions this may delete your saved responses.

De-identified aggregated results will be incorporated in the Movement Monitor summary later in 2024. Results in identifiable form will also be shared with the Sunrise Project and Climate Action Network Australia, with your consent.

Your participation in the survey will help provide valuable insights about the climate movement.
