We love a sunpowered country

A handful of companies are burning dirty energy like coal, polluting our skies and fuelling global warming. 

We want to live in a world where life can thrive. Where we power our lives with clean energy from the sun and wind. A world where we use energy wisely.

A world where the idea of extinction is extinct and the places we love are no longer under threat. Where our Great Barrier Reef is still a natural wonder.

A world where businesses create opportunities by working in harmony with nature, and people work in jobs with a future. Where our economic decisions are shaped by what we value in life.

A world where our children and future generations can thrive.

100% clean energy. 100% possible.

We know how to create this world.

We have the technology. Communities across our wide brown land have already started. But our government, bewitched by a handful of big polluting companies, is slowing us down.

Our pollution crisis means the changes we must make are more urgent than ever and we have no time to lose. Together, we must roll up our sleeves and build the pathway to our clean energy future as we go.

We’re calling on our federal government to commit to a national Clean Energy Transformation Plan so Australia can shift to 100 per cent clean energy, transition away from the dirty energy of the past, and use energy wisely.

The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it. ―David Attenborough
