Cooking for climate change

The Wilderness Society’s latest campaign, What’s it Worth, is inviting Aussies to host a dinner party this weekend to help fight climate change.

All we need to do is get some friends together for a home cooked meal using nature friendly, locally sourced (preferably seasonal) ingredients.

Our guests will then be asked to donate what they think their meal is really worth to a fundraising page. Their donation will help The Wilderness Society protect nature and fight climate change now so our children – and their children – don’t pay for it later.



The Great Forest National Park proposal, which is just 90 minutes north-east of Melbourne will add 355,000 hectares of protected forests to the existing 170,000 hectares of parks and protected areas in the Central Highlands of Victoria. Learn why the Wilderness Society thinks it’s so important.
