Gladstone Conservation Council Climate Policy Forum

We hope you can join us at one of our Climate Policy Forums!

Gladstone, 9.00am Monday 16 April, see program and more information here.

Agnes Water, 4.00pm Monday 16 April, see program and more information here.

We will be discussing our State’s climate policies and providing input to the Queensland Conservation Council’s recommendations for what the next version of Queensland’s Climate Transition Strategy should look like.

Gladstone Conservation Council encourages anyone concerned about climate change impacts on our region to have an input at this forum.

Refreshments will be provided (please advise if you have any dietary requirements).

Places are limited, so please RSVP to Anna Hitchcock at annarose75@hotmail.com before midday 13 April. In your response, please advise which forum you will be attending.

Why it’s important

Our states and territories need to take a lead role in tackling our greenhouse gas emissions and avoiding dangerous climate change. If we want to protect our State’s vulnerable species and ecosystems and build an economy that has a role in future zero net emissions markets, we need stronger policies to guide effective action.

The Qld Government’s Climate Transition Strategy is a good starting point to help us reach zero net emissions by 2050, but missed opportunities and challenges remain. For more information, see QCC’s briefing papers here.

We believe the conservation, NRM, industry and community sectors have an important role to play in feeding into and improving our Government’s climate policies.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the day,

GCC & QCC
