Everything is at stake at COP26. But we can still stop global heating.
The world now has about a decade left to stop global heating. We are currently on track for temperature increases above pre-industrial levels of up to 4.5 degrees Celsius. When more than 190 signed the Paris Agreement in 2015, they dearly wanted no more than 2 degrees of heating, preferably 1.5 degrees. The only way to meet that aim is by adopting a reasonably safe carbon budget at COP26. All nations must work together to live within that budget. See why this is vital and how we can set a reasonably safe carbon budget and save the planet.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-exuQBnuFw&t=183s

Australia can lead the world at COP26 to stop global heating
Australia is among the least cooperative countries in climate change negotiations. But we can reverse that and become a leader in global cooperation at the forthcoming COP26 meeting in Glasgow. The current negotiating framework in use under the Paris Agreement unfortunately cannot stop global heating. Australia can propose a Motion to replace it with one that can stop the heating. A new basis for negotiations – one in which countries work out how to fairly share the remaining safe total tonnage of emissions – is a game changer. See why and how it can be done. https://www.austcfp.com.au/post/australia-can-lead-the-world-to-fix-climate-change

National Integrated Planning & Reporting is a game changer in how power is shared in democracy
Have you ever felt that your children's future is not secure and that you want to leave a better world for them? Have you ever wondered if democracy could work better for Australia and Australians? Don’t be despondent. There is a solution. We the people can all increase our shares of power and influence in our democracy and make politicians much better leaders. Find out how National IP&R makes it possible for us to do this for the first time. It's easy, it's free and it's rewarding. The more Australians that become involved, the more rewarding it will be. https://www.austcfp.com.au/national-integrated-planning-and-reporting

Our democracy is broken – but it can be fixed
If we measure democracy by whether living standards are improving, then it has failed us in the last decade. Lots of solutions are being proposed. Some are about reform of the instruments of democracy, such as codes of conduct for politicians. Others are about increasing participation by we the people in democracy through things like citizen’s assemblies. They’re all good but they wouldn’t help reverse the decline in our quality of life. To do that, we need a well thought out long term plan. Now there is a way to build that together. See how at https://johnmenadue.com/our-democracy-is-broken-but-it-can-be-fixed/

With a little bit of organisation, Australians can increase their shares of power in democracy
Australians are dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic well. But they aren’t dealing so well with what has been identified by noted epidemiologists like Professor Michael Marmot as an “epidemic of disempowerment”. In the face of the biggest challenges like climate change, growing tensions between global powers and growth in inequality, Australians' confidence in their democracy has declined substantially.  But there is a way to organise ourselves to use our democracy more efficiently and fairly. We can integrate our plans for the future. See how in this launch of Australia's first national long term plan - "Australia Together":  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYmAQ1-6B-o&t=4s

Wellbeing

Here comes Australia’s first comprehensive national wellbeing index
Australians are travelling towards an unknown future without a map. We have no agreed idea about where we are headed to or what we would prefer to become as a nation by 2030, 2040 or 2050. Nor do we have a clear picture of where we are starting from in the early 2020s. However, a new consolidated National Wellbeing Index is now being built to show the current facts of our social, environmental, economic and democratic wellbeing. The National Wellbeing Index is being developed and published in “Australia Together”, our nation’s first long term plan. See the Index at:  https://543a0e22-a7ba-40a3-aea3-cc0010263a7e.filesusr.com/ugd/2b062e_ffe3f64ced9345bfbc6de4410467924e.pdf
