MQ Extinction Rebellion started this petition to Macquarie University

We, the students and staff of Macquarie University, want Macquarie University to declare a climate emergency.

Climate scientists say that we are facing a climate emergency, and that the future of ecosystems and human civilization now hang in the balance. Our Great Barrier Reef is dying as the oceans heat up and fires in Tasmania burned ancient world-heritage forests.

Declaring a climate emergency is a vital step in building support for the very large changes required to restore a safe climate. The university should use its influence in society to encourage climate change mitigation.

The university must also encourage and enable the ongoing climate strikes for students and staff.

The university must adopt the ‘talloires declaration’ plan to ensure the university is doing all it can to mitigate the climate emergency
