Lighter Footprints are involved in a collaborative project with Friends of the Earth (Melbourne) and Greenleap Strategic Institute to develop a Safe Climate Bill for Victoria.

The project aims to develop a draft Bill that, if implemented, would establish Victoria’s commitment to climate protection and create a framework to meet Victoria’s share of the global obligation to reduce carbon emissions to address its historical carbon debt and provide for a safe climate future.

This draft Bill will be developed through collaboration between the above parties and other climate action groups, and it is hoped will provide a contrasting and alternative piece of legislation to the draft Climate Change Bill currently being developed by the Victorian Government.
