On Friday many students will walk out to join a global climate change protest directly challenging the fossil fuel political paradigm. More than 75% of Australians now want real action on climate change. Understorey provides a background briefing from the first of seven 'Climate Change and You' forums being held across Perth every Tuesday. Today we hear Dr Neville Ellis from UWA's School of Agriculture and Environment, Dr George Crisp from Doctors for the Environment, and Piers Verstegen, director of the Conservation Council of WA. Further forums are at Tuart Hill Community Centre (March 19), Piara Waters Pavilion (March 26th), Bortolo Pavilion in Greenfields (April 2nd), Midland Town Hall (April 9th), and at the Phil Renkin Recreation Centre in Two Rocks (April 16), all hosted by the Conservation Council of WA.

In ecology, the understorey grows where light shines through the forest canopy.
Our award-winning Understorey journalists highlight local and globally-connected environmental issues that the other media commonly pass over.
