Climate Change

Climate change affects everyone - young people are affected the most.

All young people, current and future generations, have a right to a long and healthy future.

I support strong climate change action that prevents irreversible climate damage and halts warming at 1.5˚C, in line with expert recommendations.

I will:

  • Ensure young people have the right to sue government for inaction on climate change
  • Support strong emissions reductions policies and legislation
  • Invest in renewable energy in Australia with a 100% renewable target for electricity by 2030
  • Stop all new coal and coal seam gas extraction
  • Phase out existing coal and coal seam gas extraction

I will advocate for climate policies according to the best available climate science to limit warming to 1.5˚C.
