The next few years will determine the degree of suffering caused by climate change. Our governments are sitting idle on action on climate change, and playing a part in determining Australia’s suffering – exacerbating it. We need to take action into the hands of our community. We have to be all in for this! There is no other choice. And that’s where you come in..
We need our Far North community to turn up, turn out and get LOUD. We want feet on the ground: door knocking, listening, sharing, acting for a safer climate.
Our conservation movement is strong in Far North Queensland and we know that COVID has hit us hard, but we need you, we need you to activate like we’ve never activated before.
To put climate action front and centre on the agenda AGAIN. Our community cannot ignore tackling climate change a second longer.
So what’s the plan? From now until December, our volunteers are door knocking in suburbs across Cairns to talk about climate action with our community. To understand the challenges and changes seen to our climate, and our way of life here in Far North Queensland; and to bring together our community around shared experiences. Our campaign is about listening and learning what it is our community envisions a safer future to be.
We know that communities across Far North Queensland are feeling the impacts of a changing climate, here and now. Our homes vulnerable to flooding, our work more and more uncertain, and our beautiful beaches being swept away.
This year we want to hear from you. We want to know your experiences of living in Far North Queensland. To understand the challenges and the changes you have seen to our climate, and our way of life.
This year we are stepping into our neighbourhoods talking to, and bringing together our community; hearing and learning from you, as to how we can all make sure our way of life remains better for ourselves, our communities, and our unique natural environment.
Our Door Knocking Team are stepping into Machans Beach to talk to, residents and bringing together our community; hearing and learning from you, as to how we can all make sure our way of life remains better for ourselves, our communities, and our unique natural environment.
Our door knocking team meets every Saturday from 9am to 11:30am in Machans Beach. For more information email Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get involved, join the team!
