RISE for Climate Action

RISE for Climate Action

September 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Russell Square, James St & Shenton Street, Northbridge WA 6003, Australia

With extreme heat waves, bush fires and floods on the news everyday, we are not running out of time; we áre out of time.
So we need to Rise for Climate Action!

On September 8, right across the world, everyday people will be taking bold, powerful actions to hold our leaders to account and keep fossil fuels in the ground. This event coincides with the Global Climate Action Summit in California.

In Perth, we are celebrating councils that have divested from fossil fuels and we will highlight the role of coal and gas exports in Australia’s contribution to the climate crisis. We will do this by holding a rally at Russell Square, Northbridge.

Despite the heavy and urgent topic, it promises to be a fun event, with interesting speakers, upbeat music and likeminded people all joined together, taking a stand to help accelerate a fair and just transition

Bring your kids, your friends, your neighbours! Together, we’ll show that people everywhere are committed to a just transition away from fossil fuels to 100% renewable energy for all.
