City Limits - Energy Update with Act on Climate

Wednesday, 13 October 2021 - 9:00am to 10:00am

This week City Limits hosts Kevin and Zeb speak with campaigner Anna Langford, from Act on Climate at Friends of the Earth Melbourne.

We chat about the upcoming COP26 in Glasgow, including Australia's embarrassingly inadequate targets, a surprise turnaround from the Murdoch press and big business on their climate change rhetoric, and the role of the States and Territories in picking up some of the federal government's slack.

We also cover Act on Climate's exciting new campaign, Climate Impacts at Work, collaborating with several unions to investigate climate impacts in the workplace and the solutions workers want to see from governments.

Join in for the launch of their campaign with an online event (October 27, 2021 at 6:30pm - 7:45pm), and hear about:

  • Frontline workers’ experiences of climate impacts
  • How the project will work and which unions are already participating
  • How your union can get involved
  • The climate action already happening in the union movement, driven by Trades Hall and the United Workers Union

Listeners can also find out more on how to get involved with the upcoming School Strike for Climate on October 15th.

Wednesday 9:00am to 10:00am
Urban environment issues, analysing government services, both federal and state and local campaigns.
