Who We Are

The Tipping Point team is a tight knit, hard working group with a track record of delivering powerful community led campaigns, including helping to spearhead the Australian fossil fuel divestment movement, supporting the growth of the #StopAdani movement, organising mass climate mobilisations, supporting the School Strike 4 Climate movement and pushing major banks to say no to fossil fuels.

We are a national project of Friends of the Earth Australia, work closely with an amazing network of national grassroots leaders, and are supported by an incredible group of advisors.
