As a young student, I'm concerned about the future of our planet. Climate change is not about politics, it's about future generations and their quality of life. Supporting this movement will send a clear message to all levels of government that we need immediate action. The longer we continue to ignore the science, the more costly and difficult it will become to reverse the effects of climate change.

That's why I am calling on Coffs Harbour City 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 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.
