What has been updated since the original Declaration?
The main changes between the original (2020) Better Futures Australia Declaration and the updated 2022 version above are:
- Acknowledging that as a first world nation reliant on fossil fuel exports, Australia has a large part to play;
- Increasing the urgency of the action demonstrating that the bulk of emissions reductions need to happen this decade (in line with research bodies such as the IPCC); and
- Broadening the scope of the Declaration to encompass more of the Australian society and economy.
