Parents across Australia relieved to see climate election

Australian Parents for Climate Action

Parents across Australia are feeling huge relief and renewed hope today, as Australia voted in support of a safer climate future. Australians in urban and regional electorates nationwide voted resoundingly for greater climate action.

Nic Seton, CEO for Australian Parents for Climate Action, said: “We congratulate Australians – including millions of parents with kids – for voting for a safe climate and the benefits of a clean economy.

“Australians have signalled a new era for climate politics, where people all across the country are uniting behind climate leadership,” Mr Seton said.

“This outcome was seen overwhelmingly in the seats where grassroots organisations, like Australian Parents for Climate Action and others, worked to raise the importance of climate in the community. Now parents are doubling their resolve, to support our new government and elected representatives from across the political spectrum to take the necessary steps to secure the safest future for all children.”

“We welcome Prime Minister-elect Anthony Albanese’s commitment to end the climate wars and turn Australia into a renewable energy superpower. We look forward to working with elected representatives on all sides of politics to implement solutions this decade. Our kids are counting on us.”
