Frydo Fridays: the Colossal Fossil Awards

Friday, December 10, 2021 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Location: 145 Camberwell Rd, Hawthorn East

Frydo Fridays are back! Join Frydo Fridays' COP26 award night to offer the Colossal Fossil award to Treasurer Frydosaurus, who has been lashing out with pots of public money to subsidise massive fossil fuel expansion.

Why are we paying to subsidise fossil fuel expansion against scientific findings and the international consensus, risking our children's future? What can we do to make our future better? Hear from Australian Conservation Foundation's democracy campaigner, Jolene Elberth on how to reclaim our democracy. Dress up, dress down, and have fun! Musical instruments are welcome.

Australia has been judged the very worst on climate ambition in the UN.

In fact Australia was given the Colossal Fossil Award (again), by the global climate group Climate Action -International for its “appalling approach to climate change policy and ambition.”

The very conservative International Energy Agency stated no more new coal or gas from the end of 2021. But our government is ploughing ahead with publicly subsidised plans for fossil fuel extraction which could add a whopping 5% to global industrial emissions!

Come to 145 Camberwell Rd, Hawthorn East, for Frydo Fridays – the Colossal Fossil Awards and help make climate #1 in 2022.

This is a Kooyong Climate Change event.
