City of Cockburn council: Declare a climate emergency

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


We are in a climate crisis - the forests are burning, the seas are rising, there is more carbon in the air than ever before and entire ecosystems are collapsing. Animals and humans alike, are dying right in front of us yet the Australian government continues to deny the truth. We need to show the national government that we are serious about prioritising climate action. Action begins at home.


That's why I am calling on the City of Cockburn council to declare a climate emergency. 


More than 60 per cent of Australians agree with the sentiment that "Global warming is a serious and pressing problem." Here in Australia, it was Darebin Council in Melbourne who became the first council in the world to recognise the climate emergency in December 2016.


We have been given 12 years to drastically reduce emissions, lest our world warm to the point where humans face an existential threat. We cannot wait until the next Federal election. We need all action at all levels of government.


I am calling on my local council to respect the will of the people and embrace climate action. We request that you declare a climate emergency.  This would demonstrate a concrete commitment, a willingness to stand together and fight to prevent the largest threat of our times.

Save us from a climate crisis, before it’s too late. Declare a climate emergency, today.
