What is a submission?
A submission is a chance for you to give your opinion on the bill before it goes to what is called a select committee – a group appointed by the government to examine specific issues. In this case, the Zero Carbon Bill! The select committee reports back to the government with their findings and recommendations. A submission can be a written letter, video or filled in online. We will have the resources for all of these formats. Your submission can be one sentence or a page – it’s up to you!
Why should I make a submission?
This is where your voice can truly be heard. By making a submission you tell the government exactly what you want and put pressure on them to change the bill to make it happen. It is extremely important that everyone who attends strikes make a submission as it can make a big difference!
