Please put me on the list of people who want to be kept informed about the new Climate Action Plan consultation.
Great news. Over 3900 signatures for emergency speed climate action delivered to Council.
Phase one of our Climate Emergency Declaration petition has been delivered to Council. Over the last 6 months, with your support, teams led by Lynn, Julia, Tam and Alex have been collecting signatures for a radical ramp up of local climate action. That means support for low carbon transport, solar action, green spaces and more protection against climate health impacts, and most of all moving, like many surrounding Councils (including Stonnington) for a Climate Emergency Declaration and development of an action plan.
