Summer Series – Pulling the Climate trigger: Environment Laws Fit for a Crisis [Webinar]

featuring Ebony Bennett and Richie Merzian

Our summer podcast series brings you some of the best conversations from our webinars in 2022.

Last year, the Greens introduced a bill to establish a ‘climate trigger’ in Australia’s environment laws which would force the government to take into account the climate impacts of fossil fuel projects.

This was recorded on Wednesday 21st September 2022 and things may have changed since recording.
