SIGN THE PRAHRAN CLIMATE EMERGENCY DECLARATION

Our community has told me they want our governments to take stronger climate action.

We’re already experiencing the devastating impacts of climate change here in Victoria – including more frequent and intense bushfires and extreme heat.

In Victoria, burning coal is our largest source of emissions. Transport emissions are growing, whilst our native forests are being logged and land is being opened up for new fossil fuel exploration. It’s not too late, but we must act now.

Locally, Prahran suffers from a severe urban heat island effect, putting our most vulnerable at risk, which is made worse by climate change.

Help demand stronger climate action in Victoria by signing the Prahran Climate Emergency Declaration today!

CLIMATE ACTION NOW

Our plan to create jobs and lead on climate action:

  1. Power Victoria with 100% Renewable Energy – Create thousands of construction, engineering and energy jobs with publicly owned wind, solar and battery projects.
  2. Home Energy Upgrades – Home energy upgrades for local homes including, solar, batteries and energy efficiency upgrades will reduce demand for fossil fuels, cut bills and create jobs. 
  3. Beyond Coal and Gas – Coal and gas are fossil fuels causing climate change. We will phase out coal by 2030, get off gas and stop fossil fuel extraction with a just transition for communities.
  4. Protect our Native Forests – End logging in Victoria’s native forests – our precious carbon stores. And invest in regenerative agriculture.
  5. Clean Transport – Support the shift to clean, sustainable transport with a massive investment in trains, trams, buses, bikes, walking and electric vehicles.
  6. Green Manufacturing – Victoria can become a manufacturing powerhouse by adopting zero-emissions technology from around the world, and by funding new wind and solar projects.
