Book a time

Conversations take place on Zoom and run for 40-60 mins. Available times are listed below.

Switching from coal and gas to renewable energy will drastically change Gladstone. Already industry giants like Twiggy Forrest and Rio Tinto have announced plans to bring big renewable projects to town.

But right now we don’t know how many jobs these new industries will bring, how much they will pay or if they will even be reserved for locals. These are decisions we simply can’t afford to leave with billionaires and giant corporations.

But if we come together as a community we can prepare and have a say about how our future looks. Together we can guarantee housing prices, cost of living and good jobs today and for the next generation.

In alliance with local unions and faith groups, ACF Gladstone and I are trying to have as many group conversations with locals about what our community wants. That way we can make a powerful case for government and business to follow. We’ll only be successful if enough of us speak out.

Book a time now to have a one-hour group conversation online, and put your thoughts forward.

Can't find a time that works for you? Email Jaclyn to arrange a conversation at a time that suits.

Together we can break through the cycles of boom and bust and seize the renewable energy opportunity to make Gladstone a great place to live now and for generations to come.
