Senator CHAMARETTE —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

  (a)commends the National Union of Students and others for promoting 1 September 1993 as the inaugural `Shout for Global Change Day'; and

  (b)notes that:

    (i)`Shout for Global Change Day' is about increasing our sense of community, grass roots activism and empowering people to become active, to care and to take responsibility and to decide what should happen in and around their community environment,

    (ii)this support for the community is in recognition of the fact that so many environmental problems occur when the community is not involved in managing its own environment, and

    (iii)`Shout for Global Change Day' national action is symbolic of having our voices heard right across the nation.
