1 Million Women is the first major national initiative of Climate Coolers, "a not-for-profit, non-partisan women's organisation that exists to engage the women of Australia on climate change and drive practical action to cut greenhouse gas pollution."

1 Million Women - A campaign of daughters, mothers, sisters and grandmothers - Committed to protecting our climate, our communities and our future, leading change for the better.

Our goal is to inspire 1 million Australian women to take practical action on climate change by cutting 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse pollutant causing global warming.

Every woman who joins has a personal goal to cut 1 tonne of CO2 from their daily lives within a year of joining the campaign.

[On the] 1 Million Women website you'll be guided through ways to cut your 1 tonne, and to track your progress as you go along. You don't have to be an expert on climate change. Just join up and we'll guide you every step of the way.

1 Million Women - a million tonnes of CO2. It's a huge challenge.
