We live in a country that is known equally for its natural beauty and for its sporting culture. And yet, even though we are the 55th largest country by population, Australia was the world’s 15th largest greenhouse gas emissions in 2015, making its citizens’ per-capita contribution around three times the global average (Timperley, 2019).
Our actions don’t match our love for our oceans, the beaches, the parks, and the mountains which make up our home, and which are also home to where we play sport and engage in recreation. Our places of play are at risk. They provide the ‘glue’ to hold our communities together. Our clean future depends on the actions we take to protect our home for sport and recreation and we want you to take action!
