Our economic system is damaging our world

Fish darting through vibrant coral reefs. Magpies warbling and cities hugging rivers. Red dirt, towering trees and big blue skies. Everyone eating, travelling, learning, healing, working, resting, and sharing good times and bad.

We want this country to teem with life, today and forever.

But a major driver of the climate and extinction crisis we face – and a major barrier to solving it – is the structure and rules of our economy.

Today, Australia’s economic system treats our planet and people as capital to be traded, extracted and exploited. It is profoundly damaging our living world.

Our economic vision

It's time for big ideas & common sense

To build an economy that’s good for life, we need game-changing solutions that redesign the current rules, structures institutions and goals.

This will take hope, courage, creativity and a bold vision for what’s possible when we work together. Here's where we begin:

  1. Change the story and build people power
  2. Make the tax system reward good and penalise bad
  3. Measure what really matter to people and planet
  4. Encourage and push business to do the right thing
  5. Work together across civil society

It's time to value more than just what money can buy. Let's put people and our planet ahead of the profits of a few.
