Dear Mik,

In just over a month, our country will head to the polls.

Like you, we believe in a world free from poverty and hunger, in which everyone can thrive and claim their right to a better life. 

But right now coal-burning companies and politicians who side with them are causing climate chaos. They are undermining communities’ land and homes, and their ability to source food and clean water.  

Australia’s next government must step up to stop climate damage. Together we must make this the climate election. 

Oxfam supporters around the country are meeting with their local candidates from across party lines to hold them accountable. They’ll be taking this petition with them. Add your name and together we can make our voices heard.

 
 

Put simply, the climate crisis has already arrived. And it’s getting worse. Fast. 

Today, thousands of families across southern Africa are working hard to rebuild their lives after Cyclone Idai – a disaster made worse by climate change. Meanwhile, families in the Torres Strait Islands and in Kiribati are standing up to save their islands as rising seas swallow land and homes. And across Australia, communities are hurting from a record-breaking summer of extreme heat, bushfires, drought and floods. 

It’s time for courage and action. And the good news – the solutions are here, now. 

Australia, with its abundant renewable energy sources, has everything it needs to play its part in limiting warming to 1.5C while ensuring a prosperous future for all Australians and our neighbours. But right now, the world at large is leaving us for dust.  

It’s time to turn this around. Will you be a climate voter?

We know that the vast majority of Australians are looking for real action and leadership. From the inspiring school strikers to Indigenous communities fighting for climate justice and to protect country. So, let’s get on with it! 

Australia’s next government must step up to stop climate damage. It’s time to move beyond coal, to shift Australia to 100% renewable energy, and to ramp up support to vulnerable communities in our region and beyond. 

Which is why Oxfam supporters around the country are meeting with their local candidates to hold them accountable.

They’ll be taking this petition with them. Add your name and together we can make our voices heard. 

This is the biggest challenge of our times and in the fight against hunger and poverty. We have never had a bigger opportunity to make a difference. It’s time to demand the future we want, and that we know is possible. 

 
 

In determination,

Simon, Jess, Tom and the rest of the team
Oxfam Australia

PS: Many Pacific Island countries are already on the path to 100% renewable energy. Their message is simple  if they can do it, so can we! Be a climate voter
