We all know the decisions we make today affect our future. When those decisions are made by politicians, they affect all of us.
When it comes to climate change, politicians and policy makers still aren’t acting in the best interests of young people and future generations.
We need to act now if we want to protect the people and places we love.
We support the Climate Change Amendment (Duty of Care and Intergenerational Equity) Bill 2023 which imposes a statutory duty on decision makers:
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
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.
We the undersigned call on the federal parliament to pass legislation that imposes this Duty of Care and act now if we want to protect the people and places we love.
