Highlights

Perth special event coming up – “An Evening with the IPCC in Perth”, Thursday 21st  March 7 – 9pm. A public event hosted by Citizens’ Climate Lobby at which 3 authors/contributors to IPCC 1.5°C report will give presentations followed by Q&A. South Perth Community Centre.

Conferences, workshops and forums – Western Australia IPCC Forum |Western Australia Conference and Lobby Days| More to come …

Lobbying update – Parliamentary Friends Climate group launched.  Centre Alliance MP for Mayo SA, Rebekha Sharkie, and Independent MPs for Wentworth NSW and Indi VIC, Dr Kerryn Phelps and Cathy McGowan are the co-chairs and deputy chair of the Parliamentary Friends of Climate Action (PFoCA) group which met for the first time on 18th February. Read it here. CCL is delighted, as members have been advocating for such a group as a safe forum for constructive dialogue on climate solutions for some time.

Over recent weeks, CCL volunteers have met with a number of elected representatives who we considered might be interested in joining the PFoCA, or encouraging others to join.  Some are shy about everyone knowing about their support for the concept of a cross-partisan group in the parliament for considering climate solutions, so for those meetings there might not be a photo opportunity – others don’t mind a bit!
