Welcome to the Australian Parents for Climate Action policy blog. In coming posts you’ll hear from members of our volunteer Policy & Submissions team as they do their best to untangle the complex issue of what good climate policy should look like. We’re not “policy wonks”, so we won’t always be right, but we’d value your perspectives by commenting on our posts. And if you like them, please share them!
What better place to start a policy blog than by looking at the first piece of meaningful climate legislation to pass the House of Representatives in a decade: the Climate Change Bill 2022.Read more
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.
