Climate Action for Queensland
Our Queensland Our Future
On the 20th of September, school students went on strike across the world - including all around Queensland - to demand action on climate change. Despite being told by politicians in Canberra & the Murdoch press that we don’t understand or care about climate change, Queenslanders know it is real and serious. We are experiencing extreme weather – storms, extreme heat, floods, cyclones, droughts – more than any other state. We know action needs to be taken - and it needs to be taken now.
Now is the time for all Queenslanders to make their voice heard and that is why Together has established the Our Queensland Our Future campaign to provide all Queenslanders with an opportunity to join the movement for real action on climate change – before it is too late.
What you can do
We know climate change is real and extreme weather events are getting worse. Queenslanders from the Gold Coast to the Torres Strait understand that climate change, extreme weather and environmental damage are real threats to our communities.
Recently, the Murdoch media, big business, and their friends in parliament are trying to say that Queenslanders don’t care about the environment. They are trying to say we don’t care about our waterways, our reef, our cities and towns, our drought-stricken communities.
Politicians tied up with vested interests don’t understand that Queenslanders see the impact every day of the climate changing more than any other part of Australia.
It is not too late to make a difference, but we must act while we still can. We can take action in our homes, our workplaces and our communities.
On 20 September students are leading the movement for change – young people from schools across the state are taking action to defend their future and make it a good one. There will be events in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Mackay, Gladstone and Toowoomba.
Workers and the community need to stand up for real change - and stand with these students and our children to say enough is enough – it’s time for all Queenslanders to join the movement for real action on climate change.
