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

The longer we wait to act, the higher the cost. Higher fiscal cost, higher mortality, more of what makes our lives worthwhile gone forever.
There’s only one Earth – it’s time to step up and do everything we can to save it!
Queensland should be an example of what can be done to protect the environment and nature. Let’s do it!!
The science tells us we must act now, this is not opinion, it is peer-reviewed fact.
I call upon the Queensland Government to:
Slash our climate pollution by at least half this decade
Make us a renewable energy superpower
Protect Queensland’s nature to store carbon and establishing an Environmental Protection Authority that works and has some clout
Qld needs to get back on being best in the world for environment/business intersection
I want Queensland to be a renewable energy superpower, with future-proof jobs for all.
We have the natural wind and solar resources to win in this game. Ross Garnaut has the answers we need.
I would like the Queensland government to be more instrumental in establishing renewable industries rather than the current system of depending on gas an fossil fuel for its income.
We have such a beautiful climate and and great nature so let’s keep it like that for future generations
Queensland needs to champion climate action for the sake of future generations!
I want a future for my children that includes healthy nature and wildlife, not concrete and pollution.
We have one life to live and to leave our future generations need trees,wild life,streams,rivers,place of natural beauty
Make Queensland an environmental champion!!
