5. Educate ourselves


- If, like me, your were shocked by the recommendations from the recent IPCC Report “Global Warming of 1.5°C” report that argues that we need to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and to net zero by 2050 (and some groups argue even more rapid change is needed), then please also join me in becoming as knowledgeable as we can on the necessary transition we need to make to ditch fossil fuels and roll out clean, green renewables, while learning to live more but use less. For what is life for but to work to make a better world for our most loved ones, our kids? It’s time for us all to be the change. The more we know about what is needed, the more people we can tell and the more support for bold, necessary action that there will be.

Parents for Climate meet and work on the lands of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and respect that sovereignty of those lands was never ceded. We pay respect to Elders, past and present and emerging, and acknowledge the pivotal role that Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Australian community.
