Be The Change Australia's purpose is to educate, inspire and empower individuals, organisations and communities on the path to a sustainable, just and fulfilling future.

We do this through harnessing the catalytic capacity of the 'Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream’ Symposium Initiative across Australia, and by building a connected passionate community of people who stand for this vision.

In addition to supporting Symposium Events and Symposium Leader Trainings, Be The Change supports Generation Waking Up Youth Program, Jump Up Primary School Program, the Transition Leader Program, the Sustainability Surprise Party, It's Up 2 Us (a WA Initiative) and other aligned activities around Australia.


What is the Symposium?

Designed by The Pachamama Alliance with the collaboration of some of the finest scientific, indigenous and activist minds in the world, the Symposium explores the current state of our planet from a new perspective, and connects participants with a powerful global movement to reclaim our future.
