The Conservation Council is proud to be hosting the Canberra People’s Climate March, 12 midday Sunday 29 November at Parliament House — Register here!
On the eve of UN climate negotiations in Paris, people will come together in thousands of cities across the world calling for leaders to act. In Australia, national events are planned in capital cities and Canberra will bring the message to Parliament House. Sign up now and support us to help make it happen. The Conservation Council is leading the effort in the ACT, alongside our local partners 350 Canberra, AYCC Canberra, Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network, Australian Religious Response to Climate Change and Unions ACT. You can join the event on facebook here and invite everyone!
Canberra is a world leader in local emissions reductions, our 40% emissions reduction target for 2020, and our 100% renewable energy plan for 2025 have seen our emissions peak. If the world followed Canberra’s lead, we’d be well on the way to protecting our climate and a just and safe world. We will bring our message to International and National decision makers that it’s time to follow our lead. Then we’ll walk together to Reconciliation Place for a community festival celebrating our successes.
The UN Paris negotiations are an important milestone, but we’ll need strong community pressure in the years ahead to turn the Paris agreements into real climate action. So join us – to change everything we need everyone. The Conservation Council is in! Are you?
To bring about real change, there’s so much more to do. We’re hosting lots of exciting events in the lead up to the big day.
Get informed: learn about climate change and how we might respond
Join us for premier screenings of This Changes Everything. What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world? Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.
