Our Story

Change by Degrees - About Us - Our Story
From international climate change negotiations to pioneering employee engagement in sustainability, Change by Degrees was born out of the vision of Dr Tara Shine and Madeleine Murray.
They were frustrated by the slow pace of change and saw a lack of knowledge and skills amongst decision makers as a major barrier to action on climate change and sustainable development.
Their mission was to tell a different story to get a different outcome. So they started to engage people with stories and lived experiences to create engagement and build the skills needed to transform organisations from the inside out.
