Australian Parents for Climate Action
(Community Recognition Statement, 10 November 2020, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
On behalf of the Sydney electorate, I wish to record the inspiring work of Australian Parents for Climate Action (AP4CA). This volunteer group of parents, grandparents and carers of children work together to address their serious concern about climate change, with a clear focus on the safety and survival of their children. They inform and support parents to discuss and educate kids about climate change. They identify practical action that will reduce emissions and they lobby decision makers for changes to laws, policies and practices that will prevent climate change.
AP4CA currently has a campaign to get solar in all schools, childcare centres and preschools, which they show saves money and reduces emissions, while also providing an economic boost to help recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also a great teaching tool for students to learn about clean energy and how we can all take action to prevent climate emergency.
I commend the positive contribution of AP4CA to and thank them for their work to make sure there is a liveable future for all children.
