National Action Week 2-8 May
We are 'Calling All Parents' to a ‘National Week Of Action’ 2-8 May. We want to demonstrate our support, strength and optimism for demanding strong action on climate leading into the federal election within our communities and with your local candidates.
With each action or event, let's raise the importance of climate action within our community and through local media. And importantly let's build strong relationships and positively engage our local candidates from all parties directly to participate and ask them to respond or pledge to support our Solar Our Schools policy.
Easy, fun and impactful events are actions like organising a climate walk, climate picnic, playgroup, play-in, door-knocking to hand-out 'Climate Action Now' signs or even a climate coffee. The key is to be visible, create an opportunity for climate conversations with your network, community and especially local candidates.
