Right now, a pollution and extinction crisis threatens our living world. Climate damage and habitat destruction are our biggest challenges. 

To solve this we need big, systemic change. That's why we're focusing on four big goals. Together we're working to stop climate damage, stand up for nature, redesign our economy and fix our democracy

1. Stop climate damage

The number one cause of climate damage in Australia is burning coal. That's why we’re campaigning for a fast and fair transition from polluting fuels to 100% clean energy from the wind and sun.

We all want to keep enjoying life on this beautiful planet.

But climate damage is here, now. Digging up and burning coal is heating our planet and harming people.

Solutions are here, now. We know how to power our lives with clean energy from the sun and wind.

We are here, now. We won big change before. Now it’s time for people power to stop climate damage.

The climate election

Together, we are having one million conversations across the country to make the next federal election the climate election.

 

Be part of it

Stop Adani

We’re rising up to stop Adani's mega-coal mine in Queensland. We won't let this climate-wrecking, water-guzzling mine go ahead.

 

Join the movement

Go clean energy

We have the technology to reach 100% clean electricity from the sun and wind! But our representatives must step up.

 

Take action

2. Stand up for nature

We're part of a rich, interconnected tapestry of life. But ruthless corporations are destroying our forests, rivers, oceans and climate, and catapulting us into an extinction crisis. That's why we're standing up for our living world and demanding change. 

Did you know 80% of Australia’s plants and animals live nowhere else on Earth? 

But now, nearly 2000 plants and animals are at risk of extinction – because ruthless corporations bulldoze their homes or pollute our skies, rivers and oceans.

That's why we’re focusing on big, systemic solutions to stop the destruction, mend the damage and look after our living world.

Funding for nature

To bring threatened wildlife back from the brink, we’re building a network of community leaders to champion nature and a $1 billion National Environment Fund.

Strong new environment laws

We’re leading a powerful alliance pushing for new national laws that actually protect nature, and give communities the right to have a say.

Safe habitat to call home

To protect, connect and restore habitat, we're campaigning for public and private protected areas and funding to manage them. All creatures should have healthy homes!

3. Redesign our economy

A major driver of the pollution and extinction crisis – and a major barrier to solving it – is the structure and rules of our economy. That's why we're campaigning to redesign our economy so all people can live good lives in harmony with nature. 

It’s time for our elected representatives to stand up to corporate power and make the system fair. 

To redesign our economic goals, rules, and institutions so they help people achieve their goals in harmony with nature.

It's time for all business to serve our common good and create products and services replenish our living world.

Time for everyone – communities, corporations and governments – to take care of people and our planet. 

Encourage the right thing

We’re asking governments to make rules requiring all businesses to publicly report on their environmental impact. We’ll run public campaigns to name and shame poor performers and celebrate those doing good.

Measure what really matters

We’re pushing for government and businesses to measure economic success holistically. Let's track the things that matter most – like clean air, healthy ecosystems and people’s wellbeing.

Reward good, penalise bad

We’re campaigning to redesign our tax system so our government can steer good and bad economic activity for our common good – like taxing pollution and encouraging renewable energy. 

4. Fix our democracy

In a healthy democracy, dollars don’t determine public policy – people do. That's why we're campaigning to get big money out of politics, get citizens more involved and make our government work for people again. 

In Australia right now, big polluters use their money and power to rig the rules in their favour.

They are blocking policies on climate change and nature protection. 

That's why we're campaigning to make our democracy work for everyone.

Public debate should be open, robust and vibrant, not dictated by the few with deep pockets. 

Governments need to think beyond the next election cycle to the next generation, and make decisions for our common good. 

Money out of politics

We're campaigning to stop huge, secret donations from buying policy outcomes. We're pushing for transparency and caps on political donations and election spending – so people count, not dollars.

Civic participation

To create a people-powered democracy, we're skilling up citizens across Australia to actively and meaningfully participate in the democratic process, beyond elections, in small and large ways.

The right to speak out

We're defending the right of communities and civil society to actively participate in our democracy – to be a voice for nature, hold governments accountable and advocate for better laws.
