From the host

Global Cooling Party in the Lagoon! Wear orange, bring oranges and orange coloured food and drink. Let's have a wet, orange, protest party in the Lagoon! Bring placards and banners demanding climate action now! Gather at 11am, and at 11.30 we march - into the deep end of the lagoon. Remember, a 2 degree increase and Cairns will be under water. Wear orange, and let's get wet for climate action!

Hi! This is a fantastic idea, well done :)
I am a member of the JCU Sustainability Club and when we heard about this we were very keen to start an event! However, on second thought it would probably be best to join forces and have a big event rather than break it up into smaller ones. It will be a great opportunity to meet and link with other like-minded people in the community! Is there any way that we could contact the organiser of this event and perhaps contribute to ideas of activities happening on the day?
Thanks, Mathilde

Hi Climate friends,
Here are some eco -chants that I thought we could sing on the day.
Chant 1
Governments must hear our warning,
We must stop this global warming.

Chant 2
We heat up, we can’t cool down
Aussie coal, must stay in the ground
A healthy planet to succeed
This day of action, is what we need.

Chant 3
We’re to March (Oh when the saints tune)
We’re going to march (2 claps), into the deep (2 claps),
We’re going to march into the deep (2 claps),
Let our feet do all the talking (2 claps),
Because this issue has got heat (2 claps).

It’s getting warmer (2 claps), it’s mighty hot (2 claps),
It’s getting warmer it’s mighty hot (2 claps),
Tony Abbott you better ACT now (2 claps),
This climate crisis we can stop (2 claps).

The poles are melting (2 claps), we’re feeling blue (2 claps),
The poles are melting we’re feeling blue (2 claps),
We want strong and urgent ACTION (2 claps),
To stop the sinking of Tuvalu.

We’re going to march (2 claps), into the deep (2 claps),
We’re going to march into the deep (2 claps),
Let our feet do all the talking (2 claps),
Because this issue has got heat (2 claps).

Cheers
Sue - chant meister
