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 want Qld to be a climate and nature champion because there’s so much wildlife just in your backyard and so many beautiful delicate ecosystems. We owe it to Qld and Australia to preserve the ecosystems. I moved here from Victoria because then trees could be found everywhere. You could hear frogs. U can’t see trees anymore in Victoria and I hadn’t heard frogs for over 40 yrs in suburbia

I want Qld to be a climate champion because we have the talent, the natural sunshine and wind resources, and the public desire to be a leader in australia on this, not a laggard.
Don’t condemn us to past mistakes, shift us inspirationally to a future our kids can flourish in!

Come on QLD lift your game – nature is going to make us all of accountable and pay a huge price if we don’t change our ways to preserve what got — you never know we might even bring back a little of what we’ve lost if we move from a reactionary state to a proactive and energetic one🤞!

I want the Qld government to be a champion for the environment because it is so important for all of our future.
Tracey 2022-09-02 11:21:35 +1000
I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because our irreplaceable forest, water & native animal resources are being threatened (& for short-term gain) by fossil fuel companies intent on making financial profits at the price of contributing massively to driving climate impacts. We need the Queensland Government to act NOW, before it’s too late, on meaningful protection of our natural environment & meaningful efforts to capitalise on our renewable resources & the already available talent to become a renewable energy superpower.

Queensland should be the Australian leader in green innovation. Qld must act now to move forward to now only keep pace with others states, but to move to the front of the line. We have everything to loose if government acts otherwise.
Please-do it for our grandchildren and to build a prosperous future.
