Petition with 1,589 signatures delivered to Geelong Council

On 19 August 2019, an alliance of community groups handed in the petition to City of Greater Geelong councillors: 1,589 local residents calling for Council to declare a climate emergency.

The signatures were collected by a number of different community groups, including Greenpeace’s Break Free Geelong​, CACE Campaigners Geelong and Surrounds​, Centre for Climate Safety, Thrive For Future, Persistent Presence, The Sustainable Hour, and more.

Will Geelong’s councillors make a decision on this on their fortnightly meeting next Tuesday? We’ll know on Friday, when the agenda for the meeting is published. Stay tuned!
