A petition to the Parliament is the most direct way you can ask the Parliament to take action.
If our Parliament receives many petitions on climate from local communities across the country, our politicians will better understand the breadth and depth of support for stronger action to reduce emissions and support vulnerable communities in our region.
One petition in one electorate might be possible to ignore. Any number of email petitions can be sent straight to trash.
But one hundred-and- fifty old-school, pen-and-paper petitions, gathered by churches and schools and community groups across all of Australia’s 150 electorates is hard to ignore. By coordinating our efforts, handing the petitions to MPs at one key moment, and having our requests heard by Parliament, we will make it impossible to ignore.
