Make the climate safe: tell your politician you support strong action
- You can send a strong signal to your local politicians and candidates that you demand urgent action to secure a safe and liveable future for our children.
- By signing this petition our local supporters and action groups nearest to you will take signatures to their MPs and candidates to demonstrate that strong immediate action is important to local voters. We need all sides of politics pushing the ambition on climate action.
T-shirts: show your support
Wearing an AP4CA t-shirts are a great way to spark conversations with others. Whether it is at school or daycare drop-offs or on a “Walk for Climate”, your desire and commitment for climate action will be visible (and proud!).
Join local AP4CA action group
The Australian Parents for Climate Action (AP4CA) local group network is a critical source of power to effect change and protect our children’s future. We have local AP4CA groups across all Australian states and territories, check out the locations.
They're welcoming and supportive, and we would love to meet you online or in person! If you are a parent, carer, family member or anyone who cares about kids, to advocate for urgent action on climate. Get involved! Or to find out more about what they do.
Walk for Climate
Take a walk with a friend or twenty, wearing our AP4CA t-shirts and brandishing our climate- call-to-action flyers/cards. Connect with your local community by stopping for a chat, introducing yourself, and ask them if they are a parent or grandparent who cares about creating a safe future for you children.
If they say yes, pass them one of our flyers/cards and talk them through how they can get involved. Our flyers/cards ask them to:
Scan a QR code to sign a petition asking their MP to take climate action;
Host a Climate Action sign in their front yard
Join their local AP4CA group, or join with other locals like you to meet with your local federal election candidates and ask for climate action.
If they say no, that's ok, thank them for their time and wish them a great day! They will remember you for being polite.
You can also do this activity at the entrance or exit to your local farmers market, or out the front of your local supermarkets. It’s a fun way to meet your community, and empower each other to truly participate in our democracy!! Just half an hour of your time will reach dozens of people, and create connections in your community.
Other talking points - if people get chatty!
Talk about what you love about your community, and what kind of community you want it to be in the future - jobs in renewable energy, a safe place for kids to play all summer long without fear of heat waves or bushfires or floods. And how right now is a key moment to get your local political candidates to commit to stronger climate action now.
