Victorian local councils, including Moreland, understand the threat of climate change to their citizens.

In early May the Municipal Association of Victoria, at their annual conference passed a climate emergency motion by 77 percent in favour and 23 per cent against.

The motion was proposed by Darebin Councillor, Susan Rennie.

Motion 56. Climate Change
Submitting Council: Darebin City Council
That the MAV recognise that:
(a) we are in a state of climate emergency that requires urgent action by all levels of government, including local councils
(b) human induced climate change stands in the first rank of threats to humans, civilisation and other species
(c) it is still possible to restore a safe climate and prevent most of the anticipated long-term climate impacts – but only if societies across the world adopt an emergency mode of action that can enable the restructuring of the physical economy at the
necessary scale and speed;
(d) the MAV has a particular role in assisting local governments in this regard.
