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.

Petition demands

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 am sick of the fossil fuel industry dictating BOTH major parties fuel policy in exchange for donations.

I am a woman in my late 70s and a retired
GP. I want Queensland to be a climate and nature leader because I want my grandchildren and their children to see the Great Barrier Reef and koalas and black cockatoos and know that greater gliders are still in our forests. These will not be possible if action is not taken now.

We need to create sustainable future focused industries and jobs . This can only happen if the government leads and provides the opportunities for businesses to invest. Our future depends on this forward thinking and bravery. It is difficult to take a path away from the usual one, but it must be done.

They don’t call us the sunshine state for no reason — we are perfectly equipped to rapidly transition to renewables and cut off dependency to polluting energy sources. We have to unite to protect our natural resources like the Great Barrier Reef and our tropical rainforests, and prevent further erosion of what little fertile topsoil Australia has. Our tourism, agriculture, and townships depend on us to prevent further climate catastrophes like floods, fires, bleaching events, and droughts.

I really think Queensland could lead the way by investing in renewables, by stopping coal mines, by tightening up laws regarding land clearing and protecting the beautiful and valuable natural environment that we have. Please make it a priority- for us, our children and the hood of the world. Sincerely- Sheila Woodward

I want Queensland to become a world leading climate and nature champion:
to protect our world-class natural wonders,
to make Queensland a sought-after and prestigious eco-tourism destination,
to create sustainable future-focused industry and jobs, and
to ensure future generations will enjoy Queensland’s natural beauty and a healthy lifestyle.
Please take this petition seriously as a positive sign of community interest and concern.
