The time to act is now.
Welcome to the Greens! For 25 years, protecting the environment has been at the very heart of our movement. But right now, things are getting serious. We’re seeing the impact of climate change all around us, threatening communities now and the quality of life we’ll hand over to future generations.
The fact is, we are facing an existential climate crisis that threatens human civilisation – and the major parties don’t have a plan to deal with it.
Now more than ever, politics needs a shake-up. We need to send a message to the major parties and demand strong action on climate change. We need to put pressure on the Australian Parliament to declare a climate emergency.
Declaring a climate emergency means recognising that the climate crisis is – quite literally – the fight of our lives. It puts action on climate change at the centre of all government policy and planning decisions, and it begins the whole of government and whole of society mobilisation effort required to protect Australia’s people and ecology.
The Greens are proud to be powered by people, not big corporations. Our big wins, on the streets and in Parliament, have been led by our amazing volunteers around the country.
But for us to succeed, we're going to need everyone to get involved. We need people like you to help us.
