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 this because QLD has lost so much natural resource already – but has so much more to lose too.

I want Queensland to be a climate and nature champion because this is the only way. I have been impacted by the recent floods and I can see how terrible the state has been to prepare, help and prevent these types of events. We must stop fossil fuel mining. We must prepare for the future with renewables and protect our environment.

Now! Before it’s too late!

I want Queensland to respond with real courage to the climate change and biodiversity catastrophe we are facing along with the rest of the global community.

This makes sense, is future-proofing and can create an amazing State – we need this good news and good example. More nature protection, more renewable energy, a circular economy for finance, waste, for all the generations to come

I want Qld to be a nature and climate champion because all of Australia should be protected for our wildlife and our children.
What is the point of living in a desperately dirty, destructive environment with threats of floods and fires wiping us out.
We know we have to do our very best to reverse the damage as soon as possible, don’t we?

Queensland has the capacity to show the world our credentials for green energy and protected national and marine parks. It will be a leader in the economics of Eco-tourism.
