Kooyong Town Hall - Duty of Care

When you elected me last year, I promised politics done differently.Town halls like these are a key part of that commitment: I'm taking seriously my responsibility to hear from the community, listen to your feedback, and represent your values in Canberra. It's all part of my vision to put community at the heart of politics again. Good representation is about listening to people, not a political party room. 

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're at risk of becoming the first generation in human history that will leave the world a worse place than we found it.

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.
