Which Australian capital city will be the first to declare?
Petition by Zelly Been (Adelaide School Striker)
After you sign, particularly if you live in Adelaide
Please email the Adelaide Lord Mayor and some or all of the Councillors asking them to declare a Climate Emergency. Just use your own words! It is much more effective than automated emails that are all identical.
The meeting agenda will be published on Friday 22, so please wait till Friday 22 to send your emails and specifically mention you are writing in support of the climate emergency motion by Councillor Simms.
You could mention things like:
– ACC’s leadership position with Carbon Neutral Adelaide
– IPCC Special Report
– 406 (and rising) local councls globally that have already declared a Climate Emergency (global list and map is here)
– why you think it is important that ACC declares a Climate Emergency eg. the influence it will have on the public and other councils and hopefully other levels of govt
– if you live within the Adelaide City Council area, please mention that you do!
Councillors email addresses are:
