This is a free presentation by four independent, highly credentialed speakers on why Climate Emergency Declarations are important, especially for local governments, and how they can stimulate effective climate action in the local community, business and government.
Globally, climate emergencies have been declared in 2,248 government jurisdictions, covering one billion citizens. In Australia, 112 jurisdictions, covering around 11 million people, have declared (recognized or acknowledged) a climate emergency. The Australian Government recently joined our Pacific neighbours in acknowledging the "existential threats of the climate crisis", with Prime Minister Albanese joining members of the Pacific Islands Forum in declaring a climate emergency.
Recently, MoretonCAN campaigners proposed to Moreton Bay Regional Council that, to help with its development of policies for environment and sustainability planning, they hear from an independent, expert panel (convened by MoretonCAN) about local councils declaring a climate emergency. Council decided not to take advantage of this opportunity. But hearing from these speakers is too good an opportunity to miss, which is why we are bringing you this public presentation.
