Australian National Climate Change Curriculum!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The Australian Education System currently does not equip the children of the future of our nation with the resources and knowledge they require to address the problem we have created known as Climate Change.

Don't you think this is the least we could provide for them?

Did you know:

 4%  of students feel that they know a lot about climate change.

68% of students want to learn more about the environment.

75% of teachers feel they haven’t received adequate training to educate students about climate change.

The survey data below, which is not nationally representative, was collected from 1595 high school and university students aged 14-23.

Eighty-two per cent of respondents agreed with the statement "climate change is going to diminish my quality of life in the future", while 77 per cent said they did not believe their generation's concerns about climate change were being suitably addressed.

These statistics show that our education systems are in dramatic need of a reform!

Our learning, needs to reflect the severity of the climate crisis!

Sign this petition to demand reform to our education systems in all states and territories of Australia. We demand that our governments implement a curriculem that focuses on teaching solutions to the global climate crisis and sustainability. We demand this because the future of our nation and the future of humanity depends on it. Australia has the potential to lead the way in this global crisis, however we must teach our children in order to harness our true potential.

'Climate Change' should be a compulsory subject at all schools!

Australia not only offers vast landscapes with perfect conditions to implement renewable energies but also biodiverse ecosystems which play vital roles to sustaining the worlds climate and biodiversity, to name a couple: (The Great Barrier Reef & The Daintree Rainforest) which need our protection. 

Our children will inherit this world from us and it is our responsibility to equip them with the knowledge and resources they will need to live in harmony with our beautiful planet.

Sign this petition and be a part of the solution with us!

Thank you for reading.
