Australia's declaring a climate emergency.
Everything we care about is now under threat. To enable a sustainable world we must urgently address the climate emergency.
Incremental change won’t be enough to protect what we care about. Rapid response is now the only viable pathway. With a decade of deliberate action we can respond to the existential threat, matching the scale and scope of everything we stand to lose.
In 2020, SLF explores the impacts of the climate emergency and will pitch new social, economic and political responses essential for creating the transition to a safe climate.
