Higgins Climate Action Network

Higgins Climate Action Network (HCAN) is an alliance of  local volunteer groups who share a concern about the climate emergency.
We have formed an alliance aiming to achieve more by working together.  Our objective is to encourage our community and our political leaders to take effective climate action.
We are a non-partisan alliance which runs on people power and which seeks to promote strong climate action by all levels of government. We are keen to have our message heard in the lead up to the 2022 Federal election and to make sure our community understands where the candidates stand on climate.
