Join the Global Climate Strike on 20th September!

The biggest climate protest event in history is coming up on 20th September - just three days before the Global Climate Summit in New York City.

We're calling on all parents and all adults to attend the strike - and support your kids to attend as well.

There are strike rallies in all major cities and towns of Australia - head to the School Strike web site for full details and to RSVP.

Australian Parents for Climate Action members will be gathering at many of the rallies - sign up for our weekly email to stay in the loop!

We've also produced a great list of tips and resources for getting our school communities engaged and ready for the Global Climate Strike. It's aimed primarily at parents.

SCOMO UN SUMMIT MEME

UN Climate Summit Campaign

The Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, has called an emergency Climate Action Summit in New York City on 23rd September 2019.  

He has called on every country to bring stronger commitments to the Summit including to stop burning and mining coal, to increase renewable energy usage and contribute funds to help poorer nations transition and cope with climate impacts.

But Australia's PM, Scott Morrison, has said that he's not even going to attend the summit, and he's planning to weaken our emissions reduction targets.

Join our campaign and sign the petition to get Scott Morrison to attend the Climate Summit and commit to an emergency-scale target: to cut Australia's emissions to net zero by 2030.

What the Dads really want for Fathers Day

This Fathers Day our AP4CA Dads wanted to tell the world that all they really want for Fathers Day is a safe future for their kids.

They asked Scott Morrison, as a father, to take emergency climate action at the UN Climate Summit in September.

Watch our video to hear what they had to say.

#FridaysforFuture

Join us every Friday to take action for the future of our children and the planet.

Some of our members, like Chloe and her son, follow the inspiration of Greta Thunberg, the Swedish student-striker, and do a sit-in outside their MP's office.

But there are many ways to take action and get your voice heard every Friday!

Have you see the film "2040"?

2040 is a must-see film because it actually addresses the climate emergency head on and presents the solutions.

Presented and created by Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film), it's about a father searching for solutions to the climate crisis which are already in existence and just need to be scaled up.

It's SO important that we get the general public to see that this crisis can be solved. Please go along to the film and take your friends! The screening locations are listed here.

If it's not on in your area, you can organise a community screening in the local hall or request a cinema screening through Fan Force.

#Givethekidsyourvote campaign

Leading up to the 18 May Federal election we asked all parents and grandparent to give their vote to their kids.

Watch our awesome campaign video! It shows that climate change is an issue that people on all sides of politics care about.

At the next election in Queensland, once again we'll be asking all adults to #Givethekidsyourvote.
