CENTRAL Victorian environmental groups say the federal government need a wake up call on climate action.
The Mount Alexander Sustainability Group will hold a series of meetings and events over the next month calling for proactive measures to tackle climate change.
Chair Margaret Rasa said the group had recently gained a swell of local support, fueled by policy decisions of the newly formed government.
“The inaction and lack of detail in the policies is actually galvanizing the community sector," she said.
"All of a sudden individuals are starting to join in calls for action. The majority of Australians want to see decisive action on climate change. The government needs to lift its game."
Ms Rasa said the group were supporting the Australian Conservation Foundation event this Wednesday calling for "24 hours of reality".
She said the group were also planning to hold local events for the National Day of Climate Action on November 17.
