As community members, we recognise that climate change is real and the threat is significant.  If we do not drastically take action now, the world's climate will become increasingly more uncomfortable and dangerous to live in and our children will inherit an increasingly unstable world, with severe weather conditions and potential ecological collapse.  

We believe local councils can play a major role in responding to the climate emergency and mobilising local populations. Local governments have significant opportunities and the power to invest in services and infrastructure to help combat the climate emergency.  Successes in local communities can spread to other councils and to state and federal government levels.

 

This is our endeavour with the City of Melville council.
