Your future. Our future. Hope for climate justice.

20 May, 2019

In times like these it’s easy to feel anxious about the future for yourself and fellow Australians.

You are not alone. We share your heartfelt concern about the impacts of climate change and your frustration at political inaction.

Just remember that no one is above the law. Through the legal system we can hold the government and mining companies to account, uphold and enforce our environmental laws, and achieve justice for communities concerned about biodiversity and the impacts of climate change.

It’s a fundamental part of our democracy, and a powerful safeguard for times when governments fail us and corporations do the wrong thing.

In the weeks, months, and years to come, EDO Qld will not stop helping communities access their rights to combat dangerous climate change.

We care passionately about action to protect the planet and to slash greenhouse gas emissions.

Our challenge is to channel our shared anxiety into strong effective action and avoid leaving the $133 billion costs of inaction to fall on the next generation.

As the climate emergency leads to more extreme weather events threatening our agriculture, more bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef threatening our tourism and sea level rise threatening our coastal homes, we must redouble our efforts to prevent the worst of climate change and increase our resilience to its devastating effects.
