This year, we want the Global Goals to be THE talking point of the federal election. That's why we need your help! It is important candidates are aware of the Global Goals and how important these goals are to the lives of all Australians.
Send an email to your local federal election candidate now, asking for them to state their support of the Global Goals! Don't forget to CC [email protected]
If you think you received a cool response from your candidate, make sure you forward us the email to feature on the Global Goals Australia website and on our social media pages!
Dear [candidate name],
Thank you for asking for my support in the coming Federal election.
I am writing to let you know my vote will depend very much on the commitment made by the candidates in my electorate to the United Nations' 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development for 2030.
Australia's signing up to the Global Goals along with 192 other member countries in September last year gave me hope for the kind of world we will leave to our children and grandchildren.
Unfortunately, the lack of political or public discussion on the achievement of the Global Goals in Australia has left me disappointed. The Global Goals apply just as much to developed countries as they do to developing countries, and Australia's achievement of these goals is necessary to ensure we provide a sustainable future for generations of Australians to come.
If you wish me to consider placing my vote with you, I would be grateful to hear what level of commitment you have to the Global Goals.
