The Duty of care          (draft)

Climate change is the defining challenge of our time. ……

Public officials, like government ministers, should consider current and future generations’ health and well-being when deciding to approve or publicly finance fossil fuel projects that contribute to more harmful climate change.

There is an opportunity to make a submission about the Climate Change Amendment (Duty of Care and Intergenerational Climate Equity) Bill 2023 (the Duty of Care Bill). Closing date is 23 November 2023.  Or sign a petition sponsored by the Climate Council….. Community support counts.

Humanists Victoria is working on a submission about this important ethical issue. Contact us if you would like further information or would like to contribute.
