Support the Duty of Care Bill
Our kids deserve better - here's how you can help!
Did you know that currently in Australia, politicians do not need to consider the impact of their decisions on our kids and future generations, especially when it comes to decisions that impact the environment and climate?
We're inviting you to learn about the proposed Duty of Care Bill and find out ways you can support better outcomes for our kids. Until 23rd November, a Senate Committee is receiving submissions about whether the Australian parliament should have a duty of care enshrined in legislation.
The Senate Committee will soon be compiling a report on the proposed Climate Change Amendment (Duty of Care and Intergenerational Equity) Bill 2023 which will impose a statutory duty on decision makers:
1. To consider the likely impact of decisions that could harm the climate on the health and wellbeing of current and future children as the paramount consideration; and
- 2. Not to make a decision that could harm the climate if the decision poses a material risk of harm to the health and wellbeing of current and future children in Australia.
This is our chance to support the Duty of Care Bill.
This is our chance to speak up for the love of our kids and grandkids.
We will show you how to write a simple and effective submission - we hope you will join us.
Afternoon tea will be provided - RSVP is essential for catering.
Please bring along a laptop if you can for ease of writing your submission.
All ages welcome.
Paper, pens, textas etc will be provided for children you wish to create their own letters or artworks.
