Environmental network

The AEU is committed to being part of the solution to the climate change crisis.

Through connecting together as workers we can build a clean economy that will be safe and prosperous for future generations.

The AEU is aware of the high level of interest from members in environmental issues, ranging from international developments in the lead-up to December's UN climate conference in Copenhagen, through Australia's own climate change legislation, to — most importantly — the programs and curriculum initiatives happening day-by-day in our own schools and workplaces.

To discuss any of these issues, please ring the AEU on (03) 9417 2822.
