Queenslanders, our sunshine state has the tools and talent to become a renewable energy superpower – and shift away from digging and burning fossil fuels that drive climate impacts.
Ramping up climate solutions now will create long-term jobs in our regions, help restore our incredible forests and slash climate pollution this decade.
But we need to act now and not let the opportunity slip through our fingers.
Sign the petition. We need thousands of us calling on our state government to invest in making Queensland a climate and nature champion.
Working together, Queensland CAN!
To learn more about how we replace coal and gas with clean energy and create jobs in future industries now, explore the Queensland CAN! report commissioned by ACF, the Queensland Conservation Council and World Wildlife Fund Australia.
We call upon the Queensland Government to:
Make our climate safe: Slash Queensland's climate pollution by at least half this decade; slash methane emissions from existing coal and gas infrastructure; ban new coal and gas infrastructure
Protect our nature: Establish an Environmental Protection Authority for Queensland; protect 100 hectares of Queensland forest this decade
Clean up our exports and create green jobs: Create a renewable-powered exports industry to replace coal and gas exports, with 100,000 climate-positive careers for communities; guarantee jobs for fossil fuel workers
Jobs we can create in climate solutions

Concrete dosent have oxygen generating powers nature is our co existence what are you thinking it’s not on stop deforestation before it’s too late for our future children our babies need clean air to exist stop 🙏
This needs too be addressed NOW

Like CAT STEPHENS SONG SAYS

I want queensland to be a climate and nature champion because I want my kids to live a safe sustainable future life surrounded by a vibrant healthy environment.
We can show thd world that we care!
What else is there to be? I’ll go down rebelling extinction!
Qld now has the opportunity to transform into an energy superpower creating long term jobs and economic security for our state as well as restoring and protecting the natural places we love, such as the Great Barrier Reef.
We must act NOW by preventing new coal and gas projects.
Qld is the most cleared state in Australia and it is still going on today! Even though we know the environmental consequences the mines are still approved are our politicians not educated enough to move towards the future or is it just greed that gets their way ? I think this country has been raped enough it’s time to put greed and ignorance aside and head towards a stable environment.
I love Queensland and everything dwelling in it.
Enough with digging massive holes in the ground. It looks disgusting and it’s a blight on our country
Given the state’s history in coal energy I think it’s important we now control consumption as much as possible to do our part
We love Qld waterways oceans and forests
We can do it! We know what’s needed. All we have to do is think for our planet and put that above personal profits.
Surely we can think of more long term solutions to make money and invest on other then gas and coal! Let’s go Australia!
Queensland needs to be a renewable super power and leave fossil fuels in the ground.
