The Federal Coalition government’s failure to tackle climate change leaves communities exposed to intensifying impacts such as heatwaves, droughts, bushfires, and extreme weather. More leadership is needed at the state level to rein in emissions and protect communities.
This presentation will outline the current and future climate impacts facing Victoria as well as immediate opportunities to take action.
Leigh Ewbank is Friends of the Earth’s Act on Climate coordinator. Leigh spearheaded the successful campaign for a Victorian Renewable Energy Target and has been involved in grassroots efforts to tackle climate change since 2008.
