ABOUT THE ASSEMBLY:

TRUTH. SCIENCE. ACTION.

We will be gathering on the lawn outside of Parliament House in Canberra to show a united front against the ignorance shown by our government in the face of this climate emergency, and to demand that they step up and do something.

The Peoples Climate Assembly is a coalition of activists groups, supporters and concerned citizens who are ready to make a stand to our government to demand that they stand up and do something to help fix this problem we now face.

The time has come to fully realise that all of our many climate action groups have the same goal – to immediately acknowledge the actual climate emergency, follow the science, and take immediate necessary action.

This will be a great opportunity to show our unity and strength of purpose and join together in a very powerful symbolic and practical way.
