Welcome to the ‘hood that good built

Empowering ordinary people to create community change.

 Ready to start some good

in your hood?

We love you already! (And you’ve come to the right place.)

Good for the Hood is all about bringing not-so-ordinary people together and giving them the tools to create meaningful change where they live. 

Our Australia-wide ‘hood is made up of a passionate bunch of volunteers, sustainability champions, community groups, social enterprises, local councils and workplaces. 

We help them to seed, grow and nurture change from the ground up, creating thriving communities that are connected and working together for a better ‘hood.

in your ‘hood

In partnership with the ABC’s Fight for Planet A documentary, we’ve developed a toolkit to help you become a climate champion in your own community.

Jump on board to join local change-makers around Australia who are already fighting for Planet A in their own ‘hood. 

Learn how you can reduce carbon emissions with the
ABC Community Solutions Plan.
