Tomorrow night (Tuesday November 17) at 6PM, The Honourable Malcolm Turnbull, 29th Prime Minister of Australia will join climate expert Tim Flannery for an exclusive online event exploring the Morrison government's path forward on climate.

Of course the GetUp movement has opposed Malcolm Turnbull on many issues. Throughout his Prime Ministership Getup members, movement allies and affected communities campaigned against harmful decisions from his government. We will continue to hold him and others to account where they get it wrong.

But in recent times Malcolm Turnbull has stepped up his criticism of the government's inaction – and the Murdoch empire he sees as a key blocker on these issues. While we don't endorse many aspects of Turnbull's prime ministership – he is a rare, and powerful voice in reaching across party lines to reach the kind of consensus we need on ambitious climate policy.

And right now strong climate action needs every single advocate it can get.

With US president-elect Joe Biden pledging to rejoin the Paris Agreement when he assumes office in January1 and the NSW state government investing a record-breaking $32 billion in renewables,2 this week has brought renewed hope for a safe, stable climate.

Now, it's Scott Morrison's turn. Join us tomorrow night to hear how the Morrison government can follow other global leaders suit and move forward with effective, science-led climate action today.

Here's a copy of the original invitation we sent you.
