Ask State and Federal Leaders to ‘Solar Our Schools’

We call on the Australian Federal and State/Territory governments to work together to Solar Our Schools, by funding solar and batteries for every school and early childhood centre in Australia (with means-tested grants for privately-owned schools and for-profit early learning centres). 

Solar Our Schools will:

- Create at least 6,870 renewable energy jobs in all regions of Australia.

- Slash school energy bills which frees up more funds for learning resources - save large schools $114,000 in energy bills per year and small schools $12,700 per year (Beyond Zero Emissions).

- Save millions of tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

It's the perfect way to stimulate our economy.

Volunteer to power climate action!

Australian Parents for Climate Action was built from the ground up by concerned parents like you, volunteering their time to ensure a safer future for our children.

We are solutions-focused and non-partisan, with the mission of influencing government and business to take more action on climate.

One of our main campaigns is Solar Our Schools - a national campaign to get all schools and early learning centres powered by solar and batteries. 

Our volunteers are actively engaged in a range of activities for Solar Our Schools and other climate action campaigns, including:

  • social media
  • collecting signatures for our campaigns
  • running campaign-related social events
  • hosting climate action play-dates
  • creative and editorial writing
  • as spokespeople for the media
  • meeting with politicians
  • writing letters to the editor
  • research
  • writing government submissions
  • working with international climate action parent groups
  • and many more - let us know how you'd like to contribute!

Our core staff will enthusiastically support your volunteer work, including offering bespoke training masterclasses throughout the year.

Come join with us and together we can get more action on climate in 2022 and beyond!
