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 place that embraces the new technologies towards an environmentally sensitive and clean future, where the GBR flourishes and we power our state and run our state in sustainable and positive ways.
I want Queensland to be a for runner in engaging new technologies for renewable energy and saving our environment.
It’s all important for future generations and for our future environment
So we can survive and be sustainable into the future
The Qld Labour govt has a short-term view on environmental issues. Stop pandering to the fossil fuel industry or you will face the same voter backlash that the LNP and Labour suffered in the Fed election. Your govt is particularly backward in this regard, as well as your abyssmal record on other environmental protections such as land clearing. Get your act together!
I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because I know it won’t. Its backwards in everything especially this!
QLD needs to step in its responsibilities and become a proud state and an envy of the world by taking care of it’s natural habitat.
I want QLD to lead the way in renewable resources because we have the available resources to do so & I want to preserve what we have now for future generations.
Climate is important to our future and survival.
It’s time to look after nature.
Whether you believe in Climate Change or not, how we are treating nature is very sad. Time to think more about our beautiful and diverse flora and fauna.
The climate emergency is upon us, we can’t deny and delay any longer.
Climate solutions create jobs
I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion so that all our indigenous plant and animal species can survive and thrive without threat from human destruction,
We have to do better and fight to preserve our beautiful State and country for future generations. If we trash this planet there is no where else to go.
