The Pacific Calling Partnership (PCP) exists in response to Pacific Islander calls for solidarity in the face of climate change.
Science tells us that atolls such as Kiribati and Tuvalu will become uninhabitable within the next 30 years due to the impacts of climate change.
Our purpose is to help empower Pacific Islander individuals and communities to advocate for climate action and climate justice, as well as create and facilitate opportunities to enhance their voice within Australia and internationally.
What We Do
Pacific Climate Leadership Training/Mentoring
We help strengthen the capacity of Pacific Islander communities to advocate for climate action and climate justice through training and mentoring programs conducted in Australia and in the Pacific. This includes our annual Australian Pasifika Climate Leadership Program (Western Sydney) and our Kiribati-Australia-Tuvalu Exchange Program (KATEP).
Community Awareness within Australia
We raise awareness in Australia of how climate change is affecting Pacific islands through talks and workshops.
In partnership with our Pacific islander networks, we also strive to maximise media coverage of key events such as the recent COP26 and the annual Pacific Islands Forum.
We promote Pacific Islander participation at international conferences such as the recent COP26 in Glasgow. At these forums, the PCP supports and works with Pacific delegates to pressure governments to progress climate action and climate justice.
Within Australia, we organise and facilitate regular meetings between Pacific climate leaders and Australian Parliamentarians - both Federal and State - across the political spectrum.
We also facilitate public campaigns on Pacific climate advocacy such as the 2020 Open Letter to Scott Morrison signed by 15 high-profile Pacific leaders.
The PCP welcomes collaboration with individuals, governments and organisations in Australia and internationally. If you have an idea for collaboration, please contact our Coordinator, Corinne Fagueret, at [email protected]
