Over the last week, we have witnessed some historic cases of moral failure inspired by the Australian coal sector.
First was the performance of our Prime Minister at the Pacific Islands Forum in Tuvalu. Scott Morrison has pontificated about how Australia is committed to increasing the fraternal bonds with our Pacific family.
This week the Government signalled that it will continue trying to dismantle the laws that protect our communities, land, environment, and climate from mining. It’s clear that we need to keep fighting to ensure our Government holds mining companies accountable – here’s why this is so important, and how you can take action.
Wow: it’s just eight weeks to go until the next youth-led Global Climate Strike makes waves across the globe.
Momentum is swelling for the September 20 actions, which are already looking to be huge. Students, seniors, parents, teachers, union members, office workers – everyone, from every walk of life, is coming together to strike for climate action.
If we act together now, we can fight for a safe climate future. Find out more about getting started with 350 Australia, or how to host a screening of Accelerate in your community to raise awareness of how we can take climate action.
With a background in advocacy and a passion for the natural world, Katie Pahlow wants to help others find their own personal drive to protect the planet and take action against climate change.
