Climate-action groups (CAGs), whose members are highly motivated and publicly engaged citizens, have emerged in recent years within Australia. This paper draws from a multiple case study of eight Australian CAGs. It considers what distinguishes CAGs within third-sector environmental organisations active on climate change; what CAGs can tell us about the characteristics of people who join similar grassroots TSOs concerned with environmental and sustainability issues; and whether and how CAGs enhance the individual and collective motivations of their members in voluntary climate-change mitigation.
