SCEC acknowledges that we are in a state of climate emergency that requires urgent action by all levels of government. On the 4th June 2021, the SCEC Management Committee passed the following motion; SCEC acknowledges that there is an ongoing climate emergency and call on local, state and federal governments to act swiftly and decisively to reduce carbon emissions in the hope that we can avert dangerous climate change. SCEC is currently reviewing it's annual plan and operational activities and developing a climate emergency plan that will outline the actions SCEC is taking to reduce emissions as an organisation and the ways in which SCEC is advocating for the reduction of emissions on a local, state and federal level.
If you are concerned about the impacts of climate change, please contact your local Councillor and express your concerns and ask the Sunshine Coast Council to declare a climate emergency. You can find further information about this campaign here.
