Join the Community Climate Petition Campaign

Climate change is one of the greatest human rights challenges of our generation. It’s hurting vulnerable communities around the world, entrenching poverty and making hard lives harder. Right now it’s more important than ever that Australia takes strong and urgent action on climate change. That’s why we need your help to create the largest multi-electorate petition in Australia’s history and make it impossible to ignore that our communities want climate justice.

With your help we’ll raise 150 electorate-based climate justice petitions - one in every electorate across the country - and present every federal MP in Australia with the voices of their constituents at a time when the Government is reviewing its climate policies.

Together we’ll call on the Australian Government to take stronger action to reduce our emissions, transition to clean energy and support our most vulnerable neighbours to face a changing climate.

If we act together, now, we will be a powerful force for change.

How do I get involved?

Collect Signatures
We need you to help gather signatures up in your electorate until 7th August 2017. Even just getting your friends, family, school, church or workplace on board will add weight and power to your local petition.

Present the petition to your MP
We need people to turn up and hand over the petition. It is vital that MPs hear from their local constituents that this matter is important.

Our goal is .. to become painfully aware, to dare to turn what is happening to our world into our personal suffering and thus to discover what each of us can do about it”
