Australian Parents for Climate Action
Represented by Suzie Brown, National Director
How does your organisation address climate change?
Australian Parents for Climate Action is on a mission to empower and mobilise parents to advocate for climate action. Our vision is for our children to live safe, healthy, full lives because Australian governments and businesses have implemented the solutions required to ensure a safe climate. Our active group has over 14,000 parents and carers amongst 30 local groups from around Australia. We operate largely online and welcome people from all parts of Australia to join us.
What is your organisation doing to create a better future?
Parents are a large, morally powerful constituency of society. They are uniquely positioned to influence on climate by using their purchasing, electoral and moral power. If we enable them to advocate for climate action, we'll build a powerful base to influence government and businesses to implement the solutions we need to ensure a safe future for our children. We are currently campaigning for Federal and State government funding for all schools and early childhood centres in Australia to have solar and batteries and trade their clean energy as part of a virtual power plant.
