Haleemah Rahman started this petition to Petition to George Brticevic; Campbelltown City Council

Climate crisis is already having significant and harmful effects on our communities, our health, and our climate. With sea levels on the rise, dangerous heat waves spreading like wildfire and, extreme storm events striking nationwide. More severe droughts are occurring in others. 

We must take immediate action to address climate change or these consequences will continue to intensify, and will increasingly affect the nation—including you, your community, and your family.

That's why I am calling on Campbelltown City Council to declare a climate emergency. 

More than 60 percent 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.

Please, sign and share this petition and send a strong message:

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