Macquarie Alliance for Climate
The people of the Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury want urgent, genuine climate action
Resilient Blue Mountains is proud to be a part of the Macquarie Alliance for Climate.
Macquarie Alliance is a collaboration between Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury residents and groups who have joined together to demonstrate that the people in our communities want urgent, genuine action on climate change.
If you are a resident of the Macquarie Electorate that wants meaningful climate action, then add your voice by signing the open letter to federal candidates and then please share with others!
The Macquarie Alliance platform
We are Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains people who care about the future of our communities, our homes, and the natural world. We are working together for the protection and improvement of these places, through ensuring global temperatures are kept below 1.5 degrees warming. Our vision is for thriving communities within healthy ecosystems, where no one is left behind.
To achieve this we are calling on all Federal candidates to advocate for urgent action on climate change through supporting:
- A much stronger 2030 emissions reduction target for Australia
- Fast tracking clean energy and ending fossil fuel subsidies
- Support for workers and communities transitioning from fossil fuels
- Integrity in politics
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we live – the Darug, Gundungurra and Darkinjung people – and we acknowledge their connections to culture, land, water and community. We pay our respect to the Elders past and present, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
