In October 2017, Shadow Minister for Climate Change Mark Butler and Shadow Minister for Health Catherine King announced that, in government, the Australian Labor Party would develop a National Climate, Health, and Well-being Plan, based on the Strategy developed by the Climate and Health Alliance and Our Climate Our Health supporters.
Since then, CAHA has continued to work with parliamentarians and policy makers at the federal, state and government levels, to adopt this policy to protect and promote health and well-being.
We're pleased at the ALP's commitment, and encourage all members of parliament - both state and federal - to pledge their commitment to a National Strategy.
You can help make this national climate-health strategy a reality through meeting with your MP! To learn more visit: http://www.ourclimate-ourhealth.org.au/petition .
Encourage your local MP to sign the pledge - available here.
