A new campaign is looking to find out what residents in central Victoria think about climate change and the weather.
Make a Change Australia, a not-for-profit group which started in Bendigo, has launched a series of online and face-to-face surveys in the Loddon, Campaspe and Bendigo regions.
The pilot program will run though to October.
"It's part of a bigger project of Ramp Up Resilience," Make a Change Australia director Karen Corr said.
"The purpose of the questionnaire is to start the conversation around weather and climate change as it relates to individuals.
"There is a lot of talk at a political level but we're trying to encourage conversation about how people at a local level are impacted."
More than 300 people in central Victoria have already completed the surveys.
Ms Corr said there has been a broad range of responses from a variety of demographics.
"You can answer the questions regardless of where you think you're at," Ms Corr said. "The first question is do you notice the weather and it's something that everyone notices and can relate to.
"It's an open invitation for everyone to participate. It's a big topic and it's really important to hear from everyone."
Ms Corr said children and adults can participate in the survey at www.makeachange.org.au/ramp-up-resilience/
