Who are the candidates vying to represent the electorates of Chisholm and Deakin in Parliament at the next election? And where do they stand on climate change?
Here’s your chance to find out! The #ClimateElection is heating up. And in the electorates of Chisholm and Deakin, candidates from the Liberal/National Coalition, Labor, and the Greens are coming together to face their community at this climate election candidates' forum.
This is an opportunity to demonstrate a groundswell of community support for courage and action ahead of the federal election in May.
The event is free but registration is essential! Will you join us?
The evening will include a lively discussion and a Q&A session with the audience. We've invited candidates from the Liberal-National Coalition, Labor and The Greens. We'll confirm their attendance soon.
Jennifer Yang – Australian Labor Party, candidate for Chisholm
Luke Arthur – The Australian Greens, candidate for Chisholm
Gladys Liu – Liberal Party of Australia, candidate for Chisholm
Shireen Morris – Australian Labor Party, candidate for Deakin
Michael Sukkar – Liberal member for Deakin
We will also be joined by keynote speaker Dr. John Iser, Victorian Chair of Doctors for the Environment Australia. This event will be moderated by Tracee Hutchison, radio & TV presenter, commentator and journalist.
ACF has partnered with our friends at Eastern Climate Action Melbourne, Eastern Action for the Environment and ACF Community Chisholm to host this candidates' forum.
This is your chance to meet the candidates vying for your vote and ask them your pressing questions about their plans to stop climate damage.
If enough concerned citizens turn up to the forum, candidates will know they need to step up with better climate policies.
So let’s pack out the venue – RSVP now!
