Climate change is a reality that every Council, every BioRegion and collectively, every State and the Nation must consider seriously. I think that Claiming Climate Emergency is a first step to creating a platform that actions can be initiated. In claiming there is a problem we have an opportunity to create solutions to solve this problem. As a mother, community advocate and leader in the environment through my work as a volunteer over the past 10 years, I have personally witnessed the decline of an iconic species and am highly concerned. Recent drought and bushfires, prove to further confirm the catastrophic nature of current climate events and collectively, we can commit to making the changes within our individual lives to support innovative ideas to turn this crisis around. It will be dependent upon agreed collective actions.
