My name is Joey, I’m 15 years old and I am a student striker from School Strike 4 Climate.
I love sports. I play basketball, and love watching the AFL with my family. But, I’m worried that as the climate heats up, playing the sports that I love will become more dangerous.
I strike from school and work hard around school to run national campaigns to stop fossil fuel expansion because I want to protect the things I love- including playing sport. For too long, coal companies - and the banks which fund them - have been profiting at the expense of my future.
Whose team is NAB really on?
SS4C, together with Move Beyond Coal, is calling on NAB to stop funding companies building new coal mines, like Whitehaven Coal, are putting our futures at risk. Whitehaven is planning to DOUBLE its coal production by 2030 when the science is clear- we must rapidly reduce the use of fossil fuels. NAB, give Whitehaven Coal the boot.
NAB has loaned hundreds of millions of dollars to Whitehaven Coal. What’s more, in the few years between 2016 to 2020, NAB has lent $9.5 BILLION to fossil fuel companies.
Add your voice to the call for NAB to pick the winning side and stop funding Whitehaven Coal.
