Open Invitation

How can lutruwita / Tasmania be a real leader on climate?

Climate Tasmania and the Tasmanian Independent Science Council invite you to our upcoming forum:

Join us at this important public meeting to discuss how changes to Tasmania’s Climate Change Act can be an opportunity for lutruwita / Tasmania to be a real leader in addressing climate change.  

The Tasmanian Government has released draft legislation claiming it would make Tasmania world leaders in addressing climate change. It sets a target of net zero emissions by 2030 and establishes a framework for sector-based emissions reduction plans.

But does it go far enough?

Does it include actions to ensure Tasmania reduces emissions, rather than relying on land-use changes and carbon accounting to claim a net zero result? Is there public accountability to ensure that all sectors of the Tasmanian economy rapidly implement the changes we need to prevent the more disastrous effects of climate change?

Speakers include
• Professor Mark Howden, vice chair of the IPCC,
• Hon. Roger Jaensch, Tasmanian Minister for Climate Change,
• Professor Richard Eccleston, Director of the Tasmanian Policy Exchange in UTAS,
• David Hamilton, member of Climate Tasmania
• Rachel Hay, secretary of the Tasmanian Independent Science Council. 

Eloise Carr, Director of the Australia Institute Tasmania, will moderate the event.

You can find out more information about the event, and register to attend here.
(Registrations are essential as places are limited.)
