I, Sandy Creighton, declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency
I pledge to work with and support my community and local government in tackling this Emergency, and I call on others to do the same.
1. I will tell the Truth
I will communicate with citizens and support them to discover the truth about the Emergency and the changes that are needed.
2. I will take Action
I pledge to work towards reducing our emissions to net zero by 2025. I will challenge policies and actions of local and national governments and their agencies that do not help to reduce emissions or consumption levels. I will actively work to imagine and model ways that can regenerate the planet’s resources. I will participate in non-violent direct action to secure the solutions needed to avert catastrophe and protect the future. It is my right and duty to rebel.
3. I am committed to Justice
I will do what is possible to enable dialogue and expression amidst our communities about how the Emergency will affect them and the changes that are needed. I will support demands for more democracy within our civic institutions and government. I believe that all truth-telling, action and democratic work must be underpinned by a commitment to justice based on intersectional principles, led by and for marginalised people.
