Global Climate Strike

To everyone who cares about a safe climate future, this is your invitation to join the Global #ClimateStrike on September 20 - people around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t. Australia is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought. Flash flooding. Catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But just at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.

So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to join us for our biggest ever global #ClimateStrike. By taking time off school and work together around the world, we’ll show our politicians that people everywhere want climate justice and we’re not going away until we get it. We’ll strike in solidarity for everyone who’s already being hurt by the climate crisis and everyone who will be impacted if we don’t act now: workers, first nations people, young people, mining communities and more.

Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. On March 15, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world. On September 20, we’re going to take our movement to the next level. If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.

See you on September 20 to strike for climate justice.

Power Memorial Park Mudjimba

Keep it Natural Beach Walk

Join us for a morning WALK along the beautiful NATURAL beaches north of the Maroochy River, from Power Memorial Park Mudjimba north to Birrahl Park, Yaroomba, a distance of about 7 kms. A shorter walk can also be completed, by starting at the Marcoola SLSC, about 3.5kms. 

This event is being run by Coolum and North Shore Coast Care and Friends of Yaroomba, as a fundraiser for the Court Appeal against the outrageous approval of Sekisui’s highrise high density hotel and apartments beside Yaroomba Beach.

But more than that, it is an opportunity for you to show how much you care about keeping the Sunshine Coast’s beaches unspoilt for residents and visitors and friendly to our native wildlife, particularly our endangered loggerhead turtles.

How much do you value your natural beach – blue ocean, golden sand, green backdrop along the dunes? Registration costs $25. Your registration provides a lovely morning on the beach with family or friends, a swim between the flags to cool off at the end (or on the way), good company when you arrive at Birrahl Park, a sausage (or vegetarian) sandwich and soft drink at the end and a completion certificate.

Also we ask you to try to raise another $100 per person. How? Have a BBQ, do a car boot or garage sale, pass the hat around at work or school.
