A bipartisan approach to environment and climate action

Thursday 3 December 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Join us for a rare opportunity to hear from two sides of the political spectrum on climate change and environmentalism. We will examine how these issues have become a priority for everyday Australians across the political spectrum. And we will dive deep into what needs to be done to transform the policies of our two major parties.

Speakers:

  • Since 1987, Dr Sarah Cameron and Professor Ian McAllister from the Australian National University have run the Australian Election Study after every federal election. They will trace the trajectory of public opinion towards climate change and the environment in terms of policy issues, political leaders, and the functioning of Australian democracy more generally. As well as share their insights on what informed voting behaviour in the 2019 federal election
  • Felicity Wade is the National Convener of the Labor Environment Action Network (LEAN). LEAN is a network of Labor party members and supporters working for environmental reform. They celebrate Labor’s environmental legacy and campaign to ensure the environment is central to future policy.
  • Cristina Talackos is President of the Coalition for Conservation (C4C). C4C is a forum for conservatives who support environmental issues and de-carbonisation. They engage with politicians to build bipartisan support for the action required to address environmental damage, emissions reduction, while supporting the economy. C4C celebrate and promote the achievements of conservative-leaning local, State and Federal political representatives on environmental issues.
