Federal MP's John-Hewson, Zali Steggall, Adam Bandt and Andrew Wilkie call for declaration of Climate Emergency Sept 2019

Federal MP’s John-Hewson, Zali Steggall, Adam Bandt and Andrew Wilkie are calling for a declaration of Climate Emergency by the Australian Parliament.

I’m excited to share that our campaign calling on Parliament to declare a climate emergency has taken a massive step forward, with the crossbench joining today with former Liberal leader John Hewson to call on Parliament to declare a climate emergency.

Will you join our campaign asking for Parliament to declare a climate emergency? Now it’s up to Labor and Liberal to join us. We’re confident we can get this motion passed, but it’s up to all of us to make sure they hear the message loud and clear that they want Parliament to declare a climate emergency.

Will you add your voice to our petition, helping us send the most powerful possible message to Labor and Liberal?

I’m so glad to have the support of my crossbench colleagues Zali Steggall, Helen Haines, Rebekha Sharkie and Andrew Wilkie in our campaign. And we’re not alone. Today, John Hewson, who once led the Liberal Party, joined with us to demand Parliament takes action.

Tackling the climate crisis is an issue bigger than party politics. This about the future of our planet, the future of our children and grandchildren and the future of humanity.

We’re hopeful we can get this motion passed so that the climate crisis is placed at the centre of all policy and planning decisions.

Can you keep the campaign momentum up by signing our petition today?

With your help we can make change.

Adam Bandt
Greens spokesperson for climate change and energy
