What is SCEC doing?

We believe that once ordinary people understand the issues surrounding climate change (and are not misled by the well-organised climate denial industry), they will demand serious commitment by our political leaders for real action.

Lobbying local governments and institutions to divest from fossil fuels

We want our politicians, of all parties and at all levels, to acknowledge that they must show real leadership by committing to reductions in greenhouse emissions both in Australia and internationally. Across Australia, more than 120 institutions such as local councils, universities and churches have resolved to shift their investments out of the fossil fuel industry.  

SCEC is campaigning for similar ethical action to be taken by the Sunshine Coast Council, the Noosa Council and the University of the Sunshine Coast.
