ARRCC is a multi-faith, member-based organisation of people from around Australia who are committed to taking action on climate change. Our members represent a variety of religious traditions. We believe that as people dedicated to the common good, inspired by our beliefs and energized by our spirituality, people of all faiths can and should be at the forefront of creating a safe climate. While celebrating the uniqueness of our different traditions, we stand together in working for an ecologically and socially sustainable future.
ARRCC acknowledges the special place that Aboriginal culture and spirituality have in upholding care for the Earth. We have much to learn from the intimate connection our Aboriginal brothers and sisters have to country.
ARRCC has both individual and organisational members from across Australia. A list of our organisational members is available on our Members and Supporters page. It is guided by a management committee that is responsible for ARRCC's broad strategic direction and for driving key programs and initiatives (see below). In the second half of 2013, GreenFaith Australia joined ARRCC, as a Victorian-based chapter now known as GreenFaith/ARRCC.
