Take a Stand for the Planet

Welcome to the homepage for #istandfortheplanet. Here you will find everything you need to get behind Koskela’s climate change campaign.

This is a little bit out of the ordinary for us, but it’s too big an issue for us to ignore and we’re hoping you think it is too!

With an upcoming Federal election taking place on Saturday, 18 May, we have a small window in which to make sure that every political candidate has a climate change policy. Like us, you might be feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and wondering what you can do to help get some real action on climate change.  

While we can all do our part to help the planet, we also need leadership from Government to create the right structure to make a real impact.



As we know, our current political system is now poll driven and responsive rather than proactive.  So, we have a really simple way you can help: jump on social media and take a stand for the planet!


    What do we want?

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. They have identified three key areas we need Government action on: 

    1. A transition to a fully decarbonized energy supply,

    2. Incentives to transition to reduce emissions from transportation, and

    3. A carbon trading or taxation scheme.


    A little sweetener

    If you need a bit more of an incentive we are giving a $50 Koskela voucher to a person who has posted with the hashtag #istandfortheplanet. Winners will be selected randomly and we will give away a voucher every week in the lead up to the election.
