Safe Climate Declaration (an invitation to sign)
The National Climate Emergency Summit held in Melbourne in February 2020 explored how to shape Australia's Climate Emergency Transition. The summit brought together practioners, advocates, governments, youth leaders and industry innovators from across the country to hear, workshop and debate the political, economic, technical and social change dimensions of initiating and delivering climate emergence responses in Australia.
The Summit closed with the preparation of a declaration - Call To Action For Australia - which you are all invited to sign.
