• Volunteer MPEG + Guest Speaker - Meeanjin (Brisbane)

    Our country needs significant changes to climate policy and a strong plan for the future. There are huge opportunities for transitioning to a cleaner, more sustainable economy, and there is growing public momentum for our governments to act on climate. The results of the 2022 election saw a huge shift towards candidates with stronger climate policies all over Australia, not just in city centres but also in regional and rural areas. Queensland in particular saw an incredible shift all because of communities having conversations. Now, MPs know that if they don't deliver strong action on climate, they won't be re-elected! 

    The new parliament is more climate friendly but our work is far from over. We need to keep the pressure on our elected representatives to make sure they follow through with their election promises. A safe climate future is still uncertain. The more of us who demand action, the more our politicians will listen. 

    Join us in person to put pressure on our MPs by writing emails and planning calls and visits – it’s amazing how much better it makes you feel, working together and encouraging each other to get some action in parliament!

    We need to keep our politicians on their toes. It matters to MPs what the mood in their electorate is and what constituents want. But they can’t know that unless we tell them!

    We will support each other to craft a letter and send as well as partake in mini online actions on the night - we won't just talk about it!

    Guest Speaker TBC
    We will have a 30min guest speaker spot for the local community, to share about their experience on taking action to support stronger climate policies, climate advocacy etc. Announced closer to the date.

    These sessions are open to new and existing volunteers, so feel free to bring friends or family members along who are interested in seeing how they can be a part of positive change.

  • Volunteer Bush walk & MPEG - Meeanjin (Brisbane)

    Start the new year with a Climate for Change bush walk and learn to engage on climate topics with state and federal MPs.

    We will meet at the J.C. Slaughter Falls carpark at 9:00am and decide as a group which trail we would like to follow. All levels of fitness are welcomed, and feel free to bring kids too (we won't do one that is too challenging).

    Once we set off on our walk, we will use this time to connect with each other, get to know each other, and Tenielle the Climate for Change QLD Community Organiser will share updates and news about what's happening around Brisbane and QLD in the coming months. We will also chat about connecting to our environment, as this is something that the community is collecting trying too safe guard for future generations.

    Once we finish our hike, we will find a nice spot to sit and enjoy some light snacks or feel free to purchase a coffee or juice from the Retro CAFE van.
    After experiencing nature, we'll together craft a letter to our local MPs about ensuring they're doing all that they can for climate. Tenielle will bring along the resources required and this will be tech free!

    We would love to see you there, bring along friends or family :)

    Please arrive no later than 9:15am, to ensure we can all head out to the bush walk together.
    If you have any questions, please reach out to Tenielle.
