Climate change is already ravaging our country. This January was Australia's hottest month on record since record-keeping began. These extreme weather conditions contributed to the mass death of hundreds of thousands of fish in the Murray-Darling Basin and sparked catastrophic bushfires in Tasmania. And yet, our government still doesn't have a clear climate change policy.

If climate inaction fills you will rage (same), then you might like to let some of that anger out at the upcoming Women4Climate conference. The C40 group — a global collective of cities committed to addressing climate change — has selected Sydney as the site of its 4th annual Women4Climate conference. Experts, activists, business leaders and our very own Lord Mayor will come together next April to talk about the single biggest issue facing our planet.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore told the Sydney Morning Herald that climate action is essential in cities, where a "staggering 75 to 80%" of the world's greenhouse gas emissions are produced.

“Many of the world’s biggest cities are setting ambitious targets and policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, proving effective action on climate change and strong economic growth are compatible," Moore said.

“Shamefully, our own national government has a history of wilful negligence and Australian politicians, both state and federal, are presiding over a climate disaster."

Moore isn't going to sit around and wait for the Federal government to take action on climate change, and you don't need to either. The Women4Climate protest will take place in Sydney in April 2020.
