To ensure a safe climate and a better future we need to undertake urgent action now. Our most recent bushfire disaster and recovery have given us a clear view of the future. It presents us with a clear challenge to deal with this rapidly unfolding catastrophe.
SHASA asks the Eurobodalla Shire Council to declare a climate emergency and rapidly tackle the imminent but solvable challenges ahead. To do otherwise leaves a terrible legacy for current and future generations.
Specific actions we endorse include:
- Keep carbon in the ground
- Help build a new, more equitable low-carbon economy
- Pressure federal, state and local governments into limiting emissions
We have many partner organisations taking the lead in tackling the climate crisis. Please support them. Each of the icons below are hyper linked to the organisations’ website or facebook page. Just click on the icons to find out more.
