ClimActs is a non-profit, voluntary-run performance collective. We use spectacle and satire to highlight the urgency of the climate and biodiversity crisis. Our express purpose is to publicly hold to account powerful polluters and their enablers (such as politicians, media, financiers) who are responsible for ongoing ecocide, as well as the associated untold human suffering.

We believe that strategic, performative direct action can communicate important and sensitive information in non-threatening and yet enormously effective ways. ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ as the saying goes. And given that we’ve been ‘performing’ since early 2013, we have a lot of pictures!

You can assist in the act of holding polluters and their enablers to account by sharing our work. The more recognition, the more powerful our message is the next time we appear. Please see our Media Partnerships Guide for using our images in your own advocacy.

ClimActs respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of country, the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation in whose unceded, sovereign lands we regularly meet, live and work. We honour their Elders past, present and emerging – recognising their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
