We are in the thick of the climate crisis.
Yet we just elected a Government that wants to open the
floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.
We are already hurting from the impacts of climate change.
If we don’t act now to transition fairly and swiftly away from coal,
oil & gas to 100% renewable energy for all, this will only get worse.
But it’s going to take all of us working together to succeed.
Join us on September 20 – three days out from the UN’s Emergency Climate Summit — by taking the day off school, uni or work to show our politicians that we’re serious about climate action.
The world isn’t waiting so neither are we.
