In the lead-up to the next federal election, we know parents’ voices are powerful to help create the political will to act on climate.
Would you like to be empowered to be a parent climate action spokesperson?
We now have a comprehensive online training portal which takes you on a step by step journey to grant you the skills to have great climate conversations, create a great local pitch for climate action, be a media spokesperson, and meet with you Member of Parliament with concise non-partisan asks that will help enable more political action on climate.
The online course is designed for busy parents in mind, to be done in manageable bite-sized chunks.
Australian Parents for Climate Action has empowered scores of parents to become national climate spokespersons, through getting opinion and profile pieces published, journalistic interviews, local news features, and even a regular monthly newspaper column.
"Support from Australian Parents for Climate Action has been amazing to give me the confidence to speak about protecting my children's future" - Deanna Hayes, Sydney
"Whilst I've felt a bit apprehensive to speak up I have been willing to because I know it's for my kids. I've had a lot of encouragement from Heidi and Nic (AP4CA staff) and never felt pressured to do more than I was capable of. It's felt energising to speak up" - Louise Sheperd, Sydney
"Having a family-friendly and apolitical brand like Ap4CA to represent in the media has given me something I can be confident and proud to speak for, even in a regional community" - Yolanda Dasgupta, Sunshine Coast
The next step to becoming a spokesperson for Australian Parents for Climate Action is creating a localised Solar Our Schools pitch.
A key part of our federal election strategy is to work with our local groups to have tangible, achievable, strategic climate actions “asks” that you are empowered to take to your local Federal MP’s, and to also get these “asks” covered in local and national media stories.
Funding Solar Our Schools federally is a solutions-based policy you can ask your Federal MP to back in their party, as a concrete action that their party can commit to as part of their roadmap to net-zero emissions.
Thus we need for you to be able to pitch Solar Our Schools to your local Federal MP as a policy that would be good for both your local community and the nation.
