What is our campaign strategy around polling booths?

Answer

At polling booths, we encourage Australian Parents for Climate Action volunteers to engage in productive climate conversations at polling stations and across their communities, but not to hand out ‘how to vote’ cards as Australian Parents for Climate Action.


Our overall strategy is to work towards durable, multi-partisan support for climate action, before and after the election. We want all sides of politics to support greater action on climate change. In order to increase trust and confidence in working with all election candidates towards playing a greater role in championing climate action, we have chosen not to undermine their campaigns, including with “how to vote” cards, or scorecards. Instead we seek to present the facts about all candidates' policies alongside clear arguments for climate solutions. We want to raise the importance of climate change in our communities. We have produced a national “where do they stand guide”.

Australian Parents for Climate Action meet and work on the lands of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and respect that sovereignty of those lands was never ceded. We pay respect to Elders, past and present and emerging, and acknowledge the pivotal role that Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Australian community.
