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

I want Queensland to be a climate champion to protect our beautiful environment & barrier reef.
Queensland has had such a bad reputation as a conservation state. Here we have the worst record of clear felling our trees and neglect over caring for our native animals. Not to mention what is happening to our Great Barrier Reef.
It would be remarkable and miraculous if we could turn this around and become a greener and cleaner state. Leading the country rather than lagging behind.
Come on Queensland!.
Queensland has an abundance of resources which can make it a powerhouse for renewable energy and industries powered by renewables. We have begun the journey. Let’s spped it up and transition quickly from fossil fuels.
I want Queensland to be a leader in managing climate change as I see this as the most important issue facing the world.
I want Qld to become a climate and nature champion because we CAN and MUST!!
We have to make the change happen!
I would love to see Qld become a climate champion. We have the weather, the resources, & the workforce, (from mining too). No excuses & no more damage to our environment, but we have to act fast as we are, maybe, already too late to save this wonderful planet… Go, go, go…
Thankyou in advance
I want Queensland to make the most of its resources to be a sustainablity leader, not trashing our wonderful state for short-term “gain”.
It is critical for the welfare of people, our country and the world!
I want QLD to be a climate and nature champion because we need to lead the way forwards for other states and territories to follow. We need to stop exploiting and start protecting what we love and value about our state! And what everyone else loves about QLD too. We don’t want to be one the flooding and climate crisis capital!
The situation is now urgent. Queensland needs to make a clear choice for contributing towards a cleaner future for the planet.
I want Queensland to become a leader and champion of renewables and to turn around from its years of being ruled by fossil fuel giants greed.
Because I love our natural world and seek to create a clean future.
A new government has given me hope. We have so much potential to lead the world in innovative sustainability. But we need a government committed to long term focus, not the next election. We’re ready to make sacrifices for our future.
I want to see Queensland become a climate and nature champion because if we don’t do the right thing in these areas our children’s futures will be blighted.
I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because we live in one of the best spaces on this planet and we just take it for granted. Look at our once glorious Barrier Reef its nothing like it was when I was a teenager we should be ashamed of what we are leaving to our next generations . Why can’t we be more diligent with whom we employ/ engage with an overseer of all funds used be more regulated and require frequent financial updates of what money is being spent on. It seems to me that the government is lobbied to support causes buckets of money are handed
with no external unbiased oversite. Next thing all their mates and family members get employed with no understanding and the money gets wasted. Why can’t we stop thinking oh that’s a good idea that will win us votes. Next thing like the French submarines project get wiped and oh, oh well there goes that 500 million but we can’t spend money where it needs to be. Mr Albanese I understand it’s hard and there are conflicting issues but why don’t we have a Member for Due Diligence that understands how to preview projects or requests for money. Renewable energy is Queensland’s absolute solution into the future.
PS. How about scrutinising the " Approved Providers of aged care as critically you scrutinise and regulate aged care facilities there is no time for care because the good providers are flat out doing the paper work to prove they are Doing the care. These regulations are a consequence of poor shonky providers. If we had half of the paper work nurses would be able to provide the care our elders deserve.
I know miracles of this proportion dont happen over night but ask the RNs in
Aged Care what they believe is needed and I bet they will not say more staff but LESS PAPER WORK/ Data collection
Put nurses back to what they do best caring. Not paper pushers. No truly send some one in to do a couple of rotating shifts and see what comes out Please
We only have one planet, come on Queensland
Be a leader it’s our duty to look after it🏝
