We are non-partisan and our ultimate goal is to have Climate Leaders make up a majority of parliament. So whether you want to run as a candidate for a major party or as an independent, we want you.
When you sign up we’ll review your application and, if you sound like a good Climate Leader candidate, we’ll set up a one-one call to find out more. After that we’ll connect you with local groups of young Australians for an interview. Don’t worry – if you’re passionate about addressing climate and willing to work hard, you’ll pass with flying colours!
1. Is the candidate committed to appropriate climate action? For example:
a. Listens to climate scientists and experts, understands the scale of the issue and solutions available;
b. A minimum target of zero net emissions by 2045 (ideally 2035);
c. Understands the need for and is willing to enact a policy toolkit to achieve that target;
d. Understanding the underlying causes of climate change, and is willing to enact policy that will address them.
2. Is the candidate running in a seat that will have a big impact if a climate leader was voted into office?
3. Is this candidate a true representative of the people, one who could win an election? Some questions we may ask to determine this include:
a. Are they rooted in their community, or have a public profile?
b. Do they understand their community and what the community wants?
c. Are they compelling and interesting to talk to?
d. Does the candidate understand what an election campaign involves and are they willing to do the work?
