Community Sector Climate Change Advocacy Week

4 October -8 October

Rapidly worsening climate change is hurting our communities. Our sector has been on the frontline of helping communities respond to the impacts of more intense and frequent bushfires, drought, floods, storms, and heatwaves. Without fast, fair and inclusive action on climate change, these threats will continue to worsen.

In November this year, all Governments will be required to submit their climate pollution reduction targets at the United Nations Climate Summit. Australia’s current targets are inadequate. Join us for Community Sector Climate Change Advocacy Week 4-8 October in calling on the Australian federal government to commit to stronger targets and fair and inclusive policies to cut climate pollution this decade.

There are three things you can do:

  1. Sign the Community Sector Climate Change Declaration to show decision-makers that a fast, fair and inclusive plan to address climate change this decade matters to the community sector and the communities we work with. The Declaration will be delivered to Federal decision-makers in Advocacy Week.
  2. Share a statement on why fast, fair and inclusive climate action matters to your community organisation.
  3. Join the chorus of community sector voices in a social media Day of Action on 7th of October to share your support for the Declaration and call for #FairFastClimateAction. Find social media tiles and a messaging guide in the social media kit for the Day of Action.
