We are a diverse group of Surf Coast residents based in Victoria Australia, united by a concern for climate change and sustainability and doing something about it at a local level. In 2008 we formed the Surf Coast Energy Group (SCEG), a not-for-profit community organisation which now has over 800 members.

Our Vision

Action for a Safe Global Climate.

Our Mission

Encouraging positive behaviour change and promoting understanding of climate change and resource use.

Our desired outcomes

  • Residents are adopting sustainable behaviours and improving performance of their built environment
  • Long-term protection and enhancement of remaining remnant and native vegetation and fauna
  • Householders and businesses grow their own food and access local food
  • People live, work and play locally
  • ‘Limits to growth’ a part of our way of doing things
  • Mindfulness of our action on other lifeforms
