Demand a climate emergency declaration

About this Climate Action

Following a wave of grassroots climate action, including the largest day of climate action in Australia and worldwide, the Australian Parliament could vote again soon on whether to declare a national climate emergency. 

That this is even being talked about at this level, and across the parties, is a marker of how far we’ve come as a movement. And that this comes as homes and lives are again at risk from bushfires burning out of control is no coincidence. The climate emergency has become too big to ignore.

Sign the open letter and join the fast-growing movement of people doing what it takes to force political leaders, business and the media to recognise the climate crisis for what it is: an existential emergency that requires emergency action.
