Dumbo Feather Climate Challenge

The time to act is now.

Behind extraordinary ideas, there are extraordinary people. Dumbo Feather is a magazine about these people.

So often we watch documentaries or read books about climate change and are left feeling completely paralysed. When the facts and figures are so alarming, it’s hard to feel empowered to act—or to even know what the “act” is. The Dumbo Feather Climate Challenge seeks to provide some guidance, offering eight clear ways you can do something about climate change and turn your apathy into much-needed action.

Over the next eight weeks, receive a specially-curated newsletter with stories and ideas for using your social, political and consumer power to make a difference.

The Climate Challenge has been produced alongside a special climate change edition of the magazine (Issue 52), which is full of these kinds of stories—from a Melbourne woman who runs climate conversation dinners to a British man who turned an abandoned mine site into a conservation park. This challenge is not asking you to do anything radical, but it is asking you to do something.

And you can. If there’s one message that rings loud throughout Issue 52, it’s that we all have agency to act on climate change. We can join a social movement, we can stop buying plastics, we can divest our money to an ethical bank, we can meet with our local MP and tell them we expect more. We have power. Each one of us has a role to play in the world we create both for ourselves and for generations to come. As ocean activist Tim Silverwood says in Issue 52, “You are the person you’ve been waiting for.” The time to act is now.

Beginning on the 13th of August, we will be sending an e-newsletter with actions you can take each week.
