Climate damage stops with us

Right across Australia, we’re growing a huge campaign for our planet and the people we love. 

Half a million people are already part of the ACF community. Our alliances reach even more! If we each talk to two people, that’s a million conversations already.

Together, we can make stopping climate damage such a big election issue, our next government will have no choice but to step up and act. Here. Now. Not later.

We're talking to people everywhere and inspiring them to use their voices and votes. We will:

  • Move friends, family and neighbours through meaningful conversations in person and on social media
  • Survey people in key places where the vote is close so parties must compete on issues to get elected
  • Call voters at hundreds of volunteer calling parties to reach masses of people with personal conversations

Get involved

Conversations are powerful. People remember a genuine and personal conversation for months, even years! Let's set the election agenda so stopping climate damage is a huge issue. Our voices will rumble from our communities all the way to Parliament House. 

Raise our voices

We’re making sure politicians know just how many people we're talking to. Together, we will:

  • Demonstrate this is a vote-changer by showing all parties how many people care in each electorate
  • Call on candidates to step up and push their parties to stop climate damage and shift to clean energy
  • Make this campaign visible in streets and in the media to get people talking and show this is a major issue

Use our votes

Together, we’ll tell people how the parties compare so they know what they’re really voting for. We'll:

  • Rate the parties' policies in an independent scorecard to help voters make informed choices
  • Flood key electorates with huge billboards, digital ads and volunteer door-knockers to share the verdict
  • Stand at polling booths across the country to remind people to vote for our planet and the people we love

So let's get to work. We need to have tens of thousands of conversations in key electorates to make stopping climate damage a major voting issue.

Join a local doorknock in key electorates or join or host a local calling party to have meaningful, powerful conversations with people about why voting to stop climate damage matters.

Climate damage stops with us. HERE. NOW. Let's have a million conversations to make this a massive election issue. Raise your voice and your vote. #HereNow #NoPlanetB
