Who is AP4CA?
Australian Parents for Climate Action is a volunteer-run group of parents from around Australia who are campaigning for a safe climate for our children’s future.
We are focused on pushing the Australian government to declare the climate emergency and commit to take urgent action to cut Australia’s carbon emissions down to zero as fast as possible, transition Australia’s energy to renewable energy, and get involved in global carbon-drawdown initiatives.
Importantly, we want Australia to take a leadership role on the world stage, leading by example and calling for other nations to take emergency action.
While Australia emits around 1.5% of the world’s carbon pollution, as a wealthy, stable country Australia is in a powerful position to lead and influence other nations. We can share the solutions and technology, cease our fossil fuel exports to other countries, and use diplomacy and trade to influence other countries to cut their emissions.
To solve this crisis, all countries must act including Australia!
As parents, we are deeply concerned about our children’s future – at current global emissions levels the very survival of the planet on which our children’s survival depends is at threat. Sea level rise, heat, bushfire and other extreme weather will make the planet unliveable for humans unless we act now. This is an emergency and we are going to fight for our children’s future!
