Sustainable Living Calendar - free online calendar which highlights events and activities across Australia which educate, promote and celebrate sustainable living.

Climate emergency rally & human sign - 1PM Saturday July 5, Melbourne, Australia

  • When: 1PM Saturday July 5
  • Where: City Square corner Swanston & Collins St Melbourne

Brumby & Rudd, get serious! NO DESALINATION PLANT -- PHASE OUT COAL. NO NEW FREEWAY TUNNEL -- NO BAY DREDGING

YES to renewable energy, public transport & urgent action to stop global warming

We are calling for Victorians to join the Climate Emergency Rally on July 5. We want to send a wake-up call to state and federal governments that they are heading in the wrong direction. New coal, new freeways and desalination plants increase our use of and reliance on fossil fuels dramatically at a time when we must be cutting our use even more dramatically. We are calling on governments to implement sustainable alternatives to these irresponsible and expensive projects.

We call on all community groups and individuals to join us to send this important message to the government. We are going to form a 140-metre-long human sign to spell the words "Climate Emergency". Please organise your group to send endorsement, tell everyone you know, and come on the day wearing something red to symbolise emergency"
