'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has'

Margaret Mead, American anthropologist

Catherine Cooper - Exhibition Project Coordinator

'I bought a second hand bike so I could ride to work every day and have cut down the amount of meat my family eats.'

Dr Buz Wilson - Principal Research Scientist

'The windows in my house are being replaced with energy-efficient ones, cutting the amount of energy required for heating and cooling.'

Sue Lewis - Museum Education Officer

'I started a local Climate Action Group which is part of a much larger network campaigning for changes to government polices relating to greenhouse gas emissions.'

Steve Vogel - Museum Interpretive Officer

'My family is installing solar water heating on our roof, which is partly subsidised by the Department of Environment and Climate Change.'

Clare Dorey - Teacher

'I try to show my students practical and simple ways we can all lessen our environmental impact and encourage them to reuse, recycle and reduce.'

Samantha Findlay - Student

'My family uses shower water savers and I grow my own herbs.'

Taylor Stacey - Student

'We reduced our energy use at home by installing fans instead of air-con, insulating our house, and using the clothesline instead of a dryer.'

Isobel Lindley - Greenpeace

'I contacted my local MP and told him I want Australia to embrace renewable energy.'
