Our Federal Election Strategy (10 mins)

The first step to becoming a spokesperson for Australian Parents for Climate Action is understanding why the upcoming federal election is a key opportunity for achieving more climate action. 

What needs to change:

  • Bi-partisan support for climate action: to shift the politics into support for climate action from all politicians and their parties.

  • Rapid, urgent progress: for short-term action and medium-term targets that see Australia do its fair share of global climate action now.

  • Reframing climate action and the transition to a net-zero economy as a valuable opportunity for Australia. For our children's sake, we must create the jobs of the future.

Australia can become a renewable energy superpower.
