Take the Pledge

Australia’s emissions are rising, and our climate has warmed 1 C degree since records began in 1910. We are already facing more frequent and severe extreme weather, including droughts, bushfires and heatwaves.

Children with bodies that are still developing and too young to care for themselves are the group most vulnerable to the effects of climate change. They are those least responsible yet most vulnerable who will bear the consequences of our climate inaction.

They have a right to grow up in a healthy environment with a stable climate. We don't have time for games! We need to protect children's health.

We call on Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Labor leader Bill Shorten to take urgent action on climate change through the measures listed below.

#NoTimeforGames

I pledge to support:

1. An urgent, far more proactive, effective and whole of government approach to climate mitigation to ensure significant health benefits for children.

2. Strengthening our primary, emergency, rural and mental health services to increasingly be able to respond to children affected by climate change, (e.g. during heatwaves)

3. Greening our health care systems, in which health professionals are well placed to be a driving force to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and waste.

4. Considering divestment as an effective tool for diverting funds away from fossil fuel-related activities which undermine the fundamentals of health, towards healthy cheaper alternatives such as renewable energies.

    Heath in the community is one of the most important factors to be addressed and shows in the reflection of the many natural yet devastating disasters occurring as climate change rapidly makes it’s effects the changes in weather patterns across the world.
    Aside from Education and the importance of teaching the youngest about climate change and sun awareness. Proactive measures must be taken now for the future generations of children. I survived the 2011 floods in Brisbane and wrote a book on the flood, interviewing the real and true stories of those involved including myself.


    I believe the changing climate requires sensible mitigation approaches, and structural changes in new housing. Take a look at what the Aztecs and Egyptians did for mitigation. Government needs to start think ahead now with new approaches and include the ideas and voices from the people of Australia.
