On Sunday 16 February, over 250 people from the south-eastern suburbs and metro area gathered at Monash University to send Premier Dan Andrews a message:
When it comes to tackling the climate crisis, the global goal is to keep warming below 1.5°C. We need this to be Victoria's goal too.
Community members are calling for Premier Dan Andrews to set science-based Emissions Reduction Targets for 2025 and '30.
Will you join them?...
We are facing a climate crisis. Summer bushfires remind us that global warming is already having dire consequences for communities, wildlife, and bushfire responders.
The Morrison government’s refusal to tackle the climate crisis leaves communities exposed to intensifying impacts. It’s why Victoria must show greater leadership and help put the country back on track.
The Victorian Labor government will soon set Emissions Reduction Targets for 2025 and '30. With climate impacts occurring much faster than scientists predicted, I urge you to set targets to help keep global warming below 1.5°C.
Science-based targets will continue the rollout of renewables and create thousands of jobs. It is an essential first step for repairing the damage and restoring a safe climate.
