Community Climate Petition - Australians of faith unite

Last edited 11th September 2017

25,000 Australians have come together and signed a petition led by faith communities calling for stronger action on climate change. Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Hindus have been pounding the nation’s pavements collecting signatures in mosques, churches, high schools and local businesses in what may be one of the largest grassroots, multi-electorate climate petitions in our nation’s history.

In a symbol of unity at 12 noon on Wednesday, 6th September, faith leaders from the Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Quaker and Christi an communities will gather on the lawns of Parliament House, Canberra to call for strong bi-partisan action on climate change.

The petitions call upon our political leaders to support deeper reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, a faster transition to a clean energy economy and better support for our poorest neighbours grappling with the impacts of climate change.

Climate change is one of the greatest human rights challenges of our generation. Right now it’s more important than ever that Australia takes strong and urgent action on climate change.
