This September, take action and have your say on climate change. Over one week, young people all over the nation will unite to cast their vote on what the Australian Government should do about climate change.
Young people will be the most affected by climate change. They also have the most to gain by addressing the issue now, with the green jobs and new opportunities that will flow from the low-carbon economy.
Youth Decide '09 is a national youth vote on climate change. It is our best chance to send the government a strong message that youth want a say in their future - before it's too late.
We can be a voice for our generation - it's about fighting for our future, as well as the future of those people in poor countries and communities that will be most affected by climate change, and don't have the resources to deal with it.
This year, Australia has the opportunity to lead the way in a global action plan to tackle climate change. In December, Copenhagen, Denmark will host the crucial United Nations climate change negotiations.
A united youth voice will help compel the Australian government to lead the way in securing a strong global agreement. Australia's 4.8 million young people should be given a voice on climate change. You can be part of this historic moment, when young people around the nation will vote on our future.
Youth Decides 14-21 September 2009
