Congratulations to Lizzie Blandthorn and Tim Read being elected to #springst

The Victorian state election is over and two of Moreland’s state MP’s signed the climate emergency declaration during the campaign: Labor’s Lizzie Blandthorn in Pascoe Vale, and the Greens Tim Read in Brunswick.

The first important step for our elected representatives is to acknowledge the problem, that we have a climate crisis, a climate emergency, that requires a level of emergency climate planning and action.

We are glad and congratulate that two of our three Legislative Assembly representatives have acknowledged the problem and in the coming four years expect they will act in their respective parties and in parliament to ramp up climate action consistent with climate science and climate targets. The citizens of Moreland expect nothing less.

Melbourne school kids climate strike on November 30

School strike – climate strike

School kids in Melbourne are going on climate strike this Friday, 30 November, and gathering outside the Victorian Parliament.

Climate Action Moreland endorses this action by youth challenging our leaders to ramp up action on emissions reduction, renewables rollout as part of the energy transition, more funding to public transport and cycling to increase transport mode share change and reduce transport emissions.

We have a climate emergency that needs rapid transformative action. The recent IPCC 1.5C report makes that abundantly clear.
