In just five weeks, we will all be having our say in the referendum for a First Nations Voice to Parliament.
We know this is a big moment – for First Nations justice and for our identity as a nation. We all have a responsibility to get informed before referendum day.
If you want to learn more about the Voice, and why First Nations justice is so important for environment and climate action, we’d love for you to come along to our webinar on Wednesday September 27. RSVP here >>
You’ll hear from inspiring First Nations leaders about what this moment means to them, and how it can build towards big, transformative change that makes our country better. You’ll learn about some of the incredible work already happening around First Nations justice – things like progressing Treaty in Victoria, protecting Country and standing up against big fossil fuel expansion.
Bringing together passionate people like you, who care about protecting our environment, it will be a respectful space to listen, ask questions and learn together.
WHAT: The Environment Movement and the Voice – webinar
WHEN: September 27, 6-7:30pm

Just last month, more than 40 environment groups signed an open letter supporting the Voice. At Environment Victoria, we believe a resounding YES vote from millions of Australians can help build momentum for a fairer future – one where First Nations communities have the power to make decisions about their lives and to protect their land and water.
Now, we're hosting this webinar together with other state conservation groups to continue the conversation – and we’d love for you to be a part of it.
If you want to know more about the connection between protecting our environment, climate action and First Nations Justice, this webinar is for you. Come along to hear from inspiring First Nations leaders and find out how you can show solidarity – now, and beyond the referendum.
Right now, we have a chance to back in campaigns First Nations have been leading for centuries – and keep building the momentum we need for lasting, transformative change. It’s a moment for us all to get involved.
