Action needed as renters living in “tin shacks”: 75 organisations urge state/territory governments to step up

Seventy-five organisations from across Australia have written to state and territory Cabinet Ministers calling for minimum standards for rental properties to safeguard the health of
renters and protect them from the impacts of climate change.

The open letter was signed by community, faith, environment, housing, industry, and social sector organisations, including SACOSS, CHOICE, Healthy Futures, People with Disability Australia, Stiebel Eltron, and the United Workers Union. It comes after the IPCC issued its most dire warning about the impacts of climate change on public health.
