Building a global community

Robert F. Kennedy
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those actions will be written the history of a generation
Robert F. Kennedy

A new approach

The threats to the Reef may seem unconquerable for many of us, but this is not true. While the kind of change needed is immense, unified action can get us there. If we choose to unite as a people-driven movement, as citizens, we can drive positive-change for the Reef and the planet.

Citizens + Actions = Positive impact

Citizens ethos

The challenges that we face and how we deal with them will define our generation. Central to these challenges is the transition to renewable energy for all and the rapid reduction in the wasteful use of resources. Currently we only reuse 9% of all the materials extracted from the planet every year. However we are also the first generation in history where the entire human race can collaborate directly with each other. This digital fourth industrial revolution offers a way of better using our resources and organising ourselves in a way that might just save the Reef and our planet from our consumption. Citizens is a platform to encourage, display and mobilise cooperation around the world inspired by the Reef.

We’re a new kind of organisation

We’re a new kind of organisation. We're starting conversations and engaging people, innovators and communities from around the world in the future of the Reef. We use our voice and our platform to bring the world’s most innovative and inspiring ideas and actions to the table. We are the first generation in history that has the ability to connect behind a common purpose – imagine what we could do together.

And you can get behind the cause by recruiting others, initiating or joining projects. Remember, we’re not looking for Facebook likes, we want real action.

Join an action

Change has already begun

We’re not starting from zero. There are already hundreds of millions of committed individuals across the planet, involved in projects big and small. We bring these people together to form a community of citizens. Together, we will convince the world that a sustainable future is possible.

If you want to play a part in saving nature’s most valuable treasure, claim your citizenship today.

Unite for the reef.

Together, we can ease the pressures that the reef faces - but we need your support to do it. Because it’s only when we’re united as Citizens, that our individual actions can come together to make a real, physical impact on the Great Barrier Reef.
