EAGA was formed in 2008 in response to community concerns about climate change and a desire to drive action in a coordinated manner in the eastern region. EAGA’s members identified the need to provide leadership, overcome jurisdictional barriers and work more collaboratively. Accordingly, EAGA is committed to responding to the challenges of climate change through the delivery of programs that aim to:
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the region
- Provide support for regional adaptation to climate change impacts
In 2016, EAGA became a foundation partner to the Victorian Government’s Take2 program. TAKE2 enables all Victorians – businesses, local councils, community and educational organisations and individuals – to be part of Victoria’s action on climate change, and contribute to the first Victorian state-wide interim emissions reduction target for 2020.

EAGA acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land that we work from – the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nations. Sovereignty was never ceded and we pay respect to elders past and present.
