Statement of Support for ECCV’s All One Together campaign
The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) is proud to join the All One Together campaign. We pledge to work to achieve an inclusive and safe community for everyone who cares about nature, free of discrimination and prejudice.
ACF is a community of more than 600,000 people speaking out for nature. Our vision is an Australia where we solve the climate and extinction crisis so our forests, rivers, people and wildlife thrive.
People are at the heart of everything we do. To succeed, a bold and diverse movement that involves everyone who cares about protecting nature and stopping climate damage is essential.
ACF has committed to ensuring that our community – our supporters, staff and volunteers – reflects the diversity of the Australian community. We are diverse in age, gender and geography but not culturally. We pledge to grow our cultural diversity with Australia’s First Peoples, and multicultural communities across Australia.
Racism is present in our country, our organisations and institutions, and our communities.
We acknowledge at ACF we can do better. We are taking action through broad consultation in the community and with staff to understand and address barriers to make sure anyone who shares our values and goals has a place in our movement – and that we can better stand with those leading change in their own communities.
Nature thrives in diversity. So will we as we create an inclusive and safe multicultural community. ACF is committed to action that makes us a place where everyone who shares our vision can participate – All One Together.
