Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: Christmas message 2019
Senator GRIFF (South Australia) (16:27): Before asking that the motion be taken as formal, I wish to advise the chamber that Senator Green will sponsor the motion. I, and also on behalf of Senator Green, move:
That the Senate—
(a) acknowledges the sentiment expressed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in her Christmas message 2019, in which she praised new generations "who have brought a sense of purpose to issues such as protecting our environment and climate";
(b) joins with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in praising the efforts of young people across the nation and the globe who are advocating for action on climate change and protecting our increasingly vulnerable environment; and
(c) recognises that, as Australia is on the frontline of the climate crisis, we must also be a world leader in climate action.
Question agreed to.
