Keep your community safe this Summer and help to amplify parent voices.
Across Australia families are experiencing the impacts of extreme weather. Extreme weather made worse by burning coal and gas.
Heatwaves, severe storms and flooding are threatening the health, wellbeing and livelihoods of Australian families.
Low-income families are often disproportionately impacted by extreme weather events.
The voices and stories of Australian families are under-represented when it comes to the impacts of extreme weather events. And the media is not connecting the dots on what is driving the increased severity of heat and summer storms.
Parents for Climate is campaigning for long-term solutions. But summer and extreme weather is already upon us, so we also need to look out for each other and help keep each other safe.
Sign up now and we will email you:
- Essential tips for staying cool and navigating the heat
Key resources for keeping safe in extreme weather
- Our guide on how to connect with others in your community to keep each other safer
We’ll also provide opportunities for you to share your story so we can let more people know what Australian families are facing, how they are supporting each other and the actions that will make a difference.76 sign ups

Nic Seton published Australian homes can be made climate-ready, reducing bills and emissions – a new report shows how in Articles and media releases 2023-12-06 11:23:00 +1100
Millions of homes were built before Australia introduced housing energy efficiency standards in 2003. They’re leaky. Gaps around windows, doors and between building materials allow air to move in and out. So people tend to compensate, with more heating and cooling. It’s costly and damaging for the environment.Read more

We hop in the car to get groceries or drop kids at school. But while the car is convenient, these short trips add up in terms of emissions, pollution and petrol cost.
Close to half (44%) of all Australian commuter trips are by car – and under 10km. Of Perth’s 4.2 million daily car trips, 2.8 million are for distances of less than 2km.Read more

Proposed ban on greenwashing claims denies justice to parents trying to protect kids from climate harms
Parents for Climate strongly opposes the proposed three-year ban by the federal government on litigation over misleading climate claims.
Representing more than 17,000 supporters, Parents for Climate filed a claim against EnergyAustralia in August for false or misleading advertising, saying the company’s GoNeutral product misled consumers into thinking it had no polluting impact on the climate.Read more
Nic Seton published What harm could one coal mine do? Plenty – 1.7 million Hiroshima bombs of heat for starters in Articles and media releases 2023-10-26 15:56:26 +1100
Why are we still approving coal projects when climate impacts are intensifying? There is, as the International Energy Agency has pointed out, no place for new fossil fuels if we have a chance of holding global heating to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Our existing fossil fuel infrastructure is enough to blow our remaining carbon budget.
Nic Seton published A small change to reach millions more Parents for Climate in Articles and media releases 2023-10-18 12:15:41 +1100
We’ve shortened our name to Parents for Climate, it’s easier to say and remember. This will help us reach and engage even more parents, carers, and grandparents in securing a safe climate for our kids to thrive. Nic Seton, Parents for Climate CEO, explains how this small change can help make a big difference.
Every day, parents provide safety, comfort and strength to their families.
We make lunches. We give hugs. We mend wounds. And we solve problems.
But climate change is more than any one parent can bear. Sure we all have a role to play, but big actors, like governments and businesses, have so far failed to do what it takes to secure a safe climate for our kids. So we’re left with little choice but to rally together, united by the love we share for our children, to secure ambitious climate action for the love of our kids.
That’s what Parents for Climate was created to do. And over four years, tens of thousands of parents have stepped up to play their part. We've engaged millions of voters and moved millions of dollars in funding to deploy climate solutions. But time is running out. And it will take many more parents to join forces to achieve our aim.Read more
Nic Seton published How to fix the climate: our response to the Climate Change Authority in Articles and media releases 2023-09-25 21:17:16 +1000
Did you know that Parents for Climate has made 14 formal submissions to our various national, state and local Governments this year alone? Each submission is carefully presented to the relevant State or Federal Government authority, as a powerful voice representing parent’s interests, and in balance to the Industry or Trade lobbies.
One of our recent submission was in response to the Government Climate Change Authority (CCA) request for submission on Setting, Tracking and Achieving Australia’s emissions reduction targets – a critical subject in that if the government body tasked with policing emissions only receives submissions from Industry emitters….. well, we can guess the outcome!Read more

Nic Seton published Health evidence against gas and oil is piling up, as governments turn a blind eye in Articles and media releases 2023-09-04 22:25:14 +1000
We are seeing deadly heat and fires circle the world. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns we are fast running out of time to secure a liveable and sustainable future. Without emergency action to stop mining and burning fossil fuels, the world faces an unthinkable 2.8℃ temperature rise.
“Unlocking” means starting large-scale shale gas extraction. After drilling through 3–4km of rock and aquifers, a cocktail of chemicals, sand and water is forced down the well. This process of hydraulic fracturing is commonly known as fracking. This brings to the surface, and then into the atmosphere, carbon that had been securely stored underground for 300–400 million years.
Today we have launched a report that demonstrates the many risks of oil and gas development for human health and wellbeing in Australia. Based on a review of over 300 peer-reviewed studies, our report provides the public and decision-makers with a summary of the now-extensive evidence of these risks.
The rising tide of fracking in the Beetaloo. Fracturing above and below the ground. Industrialising massive landscapes. Peoples country and culture.

Nic Seton published Parents For Climate sue EnergyAustralia for greenwashing in Articles and media releases 2023-08-09 17:03:29 +1000
In an Australian first, Parents for Climate has filed a claim in the Federal Court of Australia against EnergyAustralia for misleading over 400,000 consumers about the climate impact of its products.
Parents for Climate alleges that EnergyAustralia is misleading customers by marketing its Go Neutral product as “carbon neutral” and having “a positive impact on the environment” when it is primarily generated by burning fossil fuels, which the company claims to have “offset” simply by buying carbon credits.
This will be the first Australian civil action brought against a company for marketing a specific consumer product as “carbon neutral” and follows recent agreement by lawmakers in the European Parliament to ban this act overseas.
Parents for Climate estimates that 'Go Neutral' customers spend hundreds of millions a year on fossil fuel energy, while being led to believe that it is “carbon neutral”Read more
