The Centre for Australian Foresight confirms its support of the initiative to establish a citizen funded Climate Council. The Centre recognises the critical need for strategic planners and policy makers in organisations of all types – including government legislators – to have access to timely, relevant and clear information on climate change – its understood causes, likely impacts and response possibilities.
Demonstrating a convergence of urgent need by a society, enabling technologies of communication and collaboration facilitation, and a more engaged citizenry, the movement for a citizen funded Climate Council is a novel solution to a pressing systemic need to address the distinct absence of independent expert information on climate change once the Federal Government’s Climate Commission was abolished by the incoming parliament.
The Centre recommends all Australian citizens and organisations to consider supporting the Climate Council initiative.
