Will you join the community for an aerial photo to call for strengthening Australia’s 2030 climate target?
Friends of the Earth and local environment groups are organising a creative action to send a strong signal to all political parties: When it comes to tackling the climate crisis, we’re in a race to zero emissions.
At 1pm on Saturday the 19th of March, community members will gather at the Box Hill Athletics Club for a choreographed aerial photo.
We will use the 100-metre-sprint track to mark where each political party stands in the race to zero emissions.
The Morrison government’s 26-28% emissions cut by 2030 would be represented by standing on the 26-metre mark (and so on for each party). A big crowd at the 100-metre mark will represent the community’s call for zero emissions ASAP.
The images will be used in posters and flyers, and hopefully featured on the nightly news.
It will be a great afternoon with the family too, with some fun activities for kids, food and coffee carts. The event will be an opportunity to meet other people who support greater leadership on climate.
