Climate Week QLD 2019

The Queensland Government is committed to transitioning the state to a low-carbon, clean growth economy and adapting to the impacts of a changing climate.

As a part of this commitment, the Queensland Government hosted political, business and community representatives from across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region at Queensland’s first ever Climate Week from 2–8 June 2019.

Climate Week QLD 2019 provided a forum for leaders and sub-national governments to share ideas and build a community of action against climate change.

Activities throughout the week included a public program of arts, music, and panel discussions, a First Nations Summit, and climate leadership training with former US Vice President Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project.

Community groups, businesses, universities, not-for-profit groups, schools, landholders and individuals across Queensland were also invited to host climate action events during climate week.

Students from years 3 to 10 participated in the 2019 Minister’s Climate Challenge, coming up with innovative solutions to local climate change problems.
