We’ve teamed up with the World Wildlife Fund for Nature and Queensland Conservation Council to create a climate solutions roadmap for Queensland – and we cannot wait to share it with you at the Queensland CAN! online campaign launch.
By coming together, we can
Protect our reef, rainforests and communities from climate impacts.
Reverse historic levels of land clearing, and restore our chopped-down forests that naturally store greenhouse gases and keep our planet cool.
Create thousands of new, sustainable jobs in diverse industries like agriculture, manufacturing and land restoration to slash climate pollution now.
Each of us can play a role in building the momentum to make these climate solutions a reality and slash pollution now this crucial decade.
Come along to learn more and be a part of this critical push. RSVP now for the Zoom registration link!
At the campaign launch, you’ll get a full breakdown of:
- The climate solutions roadmap and how it cuts emissions and creates jobs
- The levers we as a movement need to pull to turn vision into reality
- And what each of us can do to build momentum for a cleaner, greener Queensland future.
Hear from our panel of expert and community speakers about the big, brilliant climate solutions that only Queensland has. From green hydrogen and big renewables to smart cattle feed and land restoration – Queensland's industries have so much potential to drive down emissions and create new jobs.
ACF Gladstone Campaigner Jaclyn McCosker. Jaclyn is a Gladstone local, leading a community campaign to secure a thriving, resilient renewables-led future for Central Queensland.

Youth Verdict is working to highlight the impact of climate change on First Nation Peoples' human and cultural rights, objecting to Clive Palmer's Waratah Coal mine using the QLD Human Rights Act 2019 in the Land Court of Queensland. It is the first time that the cultural rights of First Nations People have been centred in an objection to a new coal mine in Queensland.
Managing Director with Accenture Shaun Chau. Shaun has over 15 years of experience in sustainable economic planning. He currently leads Accenture Strategy’s ANZ sustainability practice and will be joining us to present the contents of a new Queensland climate action report.
