Australia Tibet Council

Enabling everyone in Australia to be part of change in Tibet

Advocating for Tibet's environment

Saturday, 19 March 2016

Many politicians are aware of China’s human rights record in Tibet. On our 5th Tibet Advocacy Day, we opened their eyes to the global consequences of China’s occupation of Tibet and its flawed policies on the Tibetan environment.

We are inspired by what we have achieved on Tibet Advocacy Day:

  1. The Australian parliament debated on the first motion on the Tibetan environment
  2. Four politicians from the two major parties spoke out on this important issue in both houses
  3. Over 20 politicians added their names to a joint letter to the Chinese Ambassador, calling on China to end the forced removal of Tibetan nomads from their grasslands

So what’s next?  We'll be organising awareness-raising activities to building new alliances with experts and leaders in the environment movement, and engaging the broader Australian community on why Tibet matters in today’s world.

In April, we're heading to Brisbane to host an exciting panel discussion at the popular Festival of Tibet.

Tibet, Climate change and our common future

Tibetans and Tibet experts, indigenous Australian environmentalists, scientists and politicians will discuss climate change in Tibet and how we can create a just and sustainable future, not only for Tibetans but for the whole region.

Join us at the panel discussion at the Festival of Tibet in Brisbane.
