Wow! Let's celebrate the huge growth in our Kooyong Votes Climate Campaign
Thanks to all your efforts climate is truly the number one issue in Kooyong!
As we can see from a millions of dollars over the top PR response and the massive amount of national attention (check our Press page for some highlights), the Kooyong Votes Climate campaign has really struck a nerve.
We should be so proud of this historic collaborative campaign, with local groups working together, bringing in well over three hundred new volunteers, and helping to create a near 8% swing, making sure that climate remains top of the agenda.
The challenge is what do we do now.
The Kooyong alliance is in the processing of forming new action groups - energy transition; laying the groundwork for a climate emergency declaration; accelerating local emissions reduction and preparing for the Council elections; and making sure that Australians are protected against the massive impacts new of coal mines, especially in the Galilee Basin, the home of the fourth largest source of carbon on the planet.
Stay tuned for new working group meetings and events in the coming weeks.
Let's accelerate our new working groups to ramp up our campaign for strong climate action.
Join in another action packed afternoon at the Hawthorn Library as we consolidate our progress and move forward. The afternoon is designed with multiple breakouts allowing you to contribute to several groups.
StopAdani - the time is now.
We just can't let Adani unzip Galilee's planet busting 29 billion tons of carbon - the fourth largest on the planet by entity. Despite Adani's posturing there are still significant hurdles to be overcome, and groups all around the country are gearing up for action. People power won in Bentleigh, James Price Point, Jabiluka and the Franklin. Lend your weight to this so important campaign to protect Country and the sacred Doongmabulla Springs, for justice, for water and for our kids.
