As Convenor of Climate Action Moreland today I Visited the electoral office of state MP For #pascoevale , Labor’s Lizzie Blandthorn, to ensure she has the opportunity of signing the #climateemergency declaration. Also made sure she is aware of the issue with Jane Morton’s booklet on messaging for the climate emergency and Climate Action Moreland’s leaflet on Transport policies for Moreland for the Climate Emergency. Moreland Council acknowledged in September by unanimous vote that we are in a state of climate emergency and will incorporate this in all council planning. Federal MP Peter Khalil has also signed the climate emergency declaration. I Also advised that extension of the Upfield Bike Path to Upfield important, that there are constituents who would cycle commute north if this path was built. This is important for transport mode shift away from cars and reducing transport emissions #vicvotes #vicvotes2018 #climateaction #springst #camoreland #moreland
