Our environment laws are here to protect the air we breathe, the water we drink and the web of life we're part of. 

Yet under these laws today, our governments are allowing companies to mine, bulldoze, dredge and destroy with little oversight.

This cannot go on. We are facing a pollution and extinction crisis and we have no Planet B.

Our elected representatives must create a new framework of national laws to safeguard our air, water and all living things, not allow it to be destroyed.

Sign the petition calling on Prime Minister Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to:

Create a new generation of national laws to protect the web of life. 

This new framework of laws must:   

  • Make the federal government responsible for protecting the air we breathe, our wildlife, our climate and the places we love
  • Establish an independent commission to set environmental standards
  • Create an independent national Environmental Protection Authority to make sure governments and businesses do the right thing by nature
  • Guarantee communities the right to have a say in environmental decisions

As part of a huge collaboration of groups – the Places You Love Alliance – we convened an independent panel of legal experts to map out a blueprint for a new generation of national environmental laws. We have the solutions – all we need now is the political will. 

By signing the petition, you're joining a growing community of people standing up for our living world.
