STOP PRESS! The signature count at the the initial return date of Feb 1 was just under 5,000 signatures. Wonderful! Thank you so much to everyone who has been helping.
We are halfway to our target of 10,000 signatures, so we’ve set a new petition sheet return date of May 1st and we will do another count then.
Look for the above petition station at The Joinery!

Climate Emergency Declaration petition to SA Lower House
The SA Upper House passed a Climate Emergency Declaration motion on 25 September 2019. Now let’s ask the SA Parliament Lower House to do the same!
NOTE: Under new SA petition legislation passed in October 2019, a formal on-paper petition like this one will ensure a response from the relevant Minister IF the petition meets all the requirements and we collect 10,000 signatures. We have verified that the petition sheet below meets State Government requirements. Please ensure that signatures also comply by adhering to the following dot points:
– Each signature must be accompanied by the first and last name of the signer and their suburb, all in the person’s own handwriting (full street address is not necessary)
– Don’t write or stick anything else on the petition sheet
– All signatures must be on the front of the sheet (signatures on the back aren’t counted)
– Anyone who is old enough to understand the petition and write their own name can sign
– All signers must be residents of SA
– Each person can only sign this petition once
Please help collect signatures!

If you will be collecting signatures, please email Beth and Maxine at email@example.com so that we have your email address and can contact you when we have a cut-off date for returning petition sheets.
Feel free to join the SA CED petition group on Facebook group if you’d like to keep in the loop re progress so far.
Note: May 1st 2020 is the new cut-off date for returning signed petition sheets. We will then count how many signatures have been collected. If we still don’t have 10,000 signatures we will continue collecting them until we do. (We had just under 5,000 as of Feb 3.)
This petition is an initiative by several SA individuals rather than any particular group. It will be submitted to Parliament at a suitable time soon after it reaches 10,000 signatures.
