About us

NUCA is a grassroots climate action community group based in Moreland and Darebin in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. We’re all about connection and action for the climate.

NUCA aims to create a vibrant, diverse, and empowered network of neighbourhood-based action groups, sharing resources, supporting each other’s campaigns, inspiring great momentum, and creating the change we want to see in the world from a grassroots level.

What we do

There already exists a multitude of environmental organisations, many focussed on climate action. Neighbours United for Climate Action (NUCA) isn’t merely a new organisation, but also a structure, or network, intending to effectively bring them all together in a way that is relevant to a local area.

We also aim to connect, educate, and empower people in the community through our Community Climate Action Series; bi-monthly events where guest presenters share their knowledge of issues and solutions, and build our collective and individual skills, resilience, and wellbeing through a wide range of sessions – from mending your own clothes, bike maintenance, divestment and effectively engaging MPs, to climate grief, reconciliation and anything else you can imagine that has some connection to climate, environment and sustainable living.

Join us
