Climate Emergency: Facing Extinction and What to Do About It
30 Apr 2020 @ 19:30 - 21:00 AEST
As the earth heats up and tipping points pass, scientists are warning we risk the collapse of ecosystems and the deaths of billions of people. But our political system is broken, the mainstream media are not fully informing us about the dangers we face and our leaders are failing to protect us. It’s time to work together to move society into emergency mode and initiate the unprecedented speed and scale of change required to restore a safe climate.
Bio: Jane Morton helped bring the Extinction Rebellion to Australia and led the campaign that resulted in the first council in the world declaring a climate emergency. A clinical psychologist by profession, Jane went into semi-retirement six years ago to focus her efforts on campaigning on the climate emergency. She is the author of Don’t Mention the Emergency?, a ground-breaking booklet on climate messaging.
