Duty Of Care Bill
Have your say...
Submissions due 23 November 2023
The Federal Parliament, for the first time, is considering a Bill to implement a duty of care to young people to take our health and wellbeing into account when making decisions that could impact the climate. This Bill is before the Senate Committee on Environment and Communications for inquiry.
And you have a chance to make your voice heard in this important conversation, by making a submission to the inquiry.
Don't be intimidated by the word "submission"
Submissions are usually written and can be provided in any format or style. Some submissions will be made publicly available. Submissions benefit both the public and decision-makers. They provide an evidence base for public interest organisations, policy makers and others to use in advocating for their cause, amending plans or conducting inquiries.". In lot's of ways it is like writing a letter.
We think this is a great opportunity for parents and kids to make their voices heard. Here is how you can do it:
