Older Australians care deeply about the future. They want to leave a better world for future generations.

Seniors are not only concerned about climate change, they are also interested in recycling, nature conservation and species diversity; and they know they have a key role to play.

National Seniors takes this challenge seriously and have created this campaign to help deliver a better future.

It will focus on promoting practical actions to tackle the pressing issues of today, to create a better tomorrow.

Together, we can make a difference.

Projecting future climate change

Global climate models allow scientists to answer questions about our climate. This video explores how greenhouse gases are a major contributor to climate change and need to be considered when simulating future climate. 

This video has been produced by CSIRO in collaboration with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology with funding from Inspiring Australia.
