I'm thrilled to be joined by climate campaigner and student Anjali Sharma at my next Town Hall alongside the Member for Goldstein, Zoe Daniel. Anjali has led the campaign for a Duty of Care Act – a new idea that would require the government to consider the effects its decisions have on future generations.
We have a duty of care to make sure our children and grandchildren can live as we have. Unfortunately, due to decades of inaction by successive governments, Australia is dragging its feet on climate change.
Thanks to the powerful fossil fuel industry, Australia is still approving new coal mines, letting multinational gas companies pay next to no tax, and failing to bring down electricity prices by transitioning to a cleaner, cheaper economy.
