It’s time to start fighting for a world where public money is spent on creating secure jobs that are good for our communities and our climate.
The new shadow minister for Climate Change and Energy, Chris Bowen signalled that climate action should be a key part of Australia’s recovery from Covid-19. While we don't know exactly what Labor's plan looks like, we do know that a real plan looks like delivering jobs that care for our communities and the climate.
While the Morrison Government keeps committing more of our public dollars to the dirty fossil fuel industry, young people and people on the margins of our society are being hit hardest by both economic insecurity and the devastating impacts of the climate crisis.
The climate crisis is unjust, it's often those who have done the least to cause the problem, who feel the effects of the climate crisis first and worst. We need our communities to be at the centre of the solution to the dual crisis, not the fossil fuel industry. That's how we rebuild after this health crisis. Not through corporate handouts, but by investing in ourselves and in our futures – tackling the issues of massive unemployment and the climate crisis at the same time.
Right now we have an opportunity to demand that Labor holds the government accountable, by prioritising the majority of Australians who want climate action, over funding dirty fossil fuel expansion.
We need Labor to hear our voices loud and clear! If Labor is serious about listening to climate science and taking climate action seriously, at the next election they must oppose ScoMo’s plan to line the pockets of fossil fuel executives with public money.
We deserve politicians who will lead on climate: ✍️ Sign now to demand Labor rule out public money for dangerous gas expansion and instead prioritises our communities.
We need action now. Will you step up to support our powerful movement of young people creating the change we know is possible?
