    Add your voice to the state-wide movement to move Queensland out of the dirty energy past and into the clean energy future.

    We call on the Queensland Government to commit to legislate an ambitious renewable energy target, phase out coal-fired power and invest in large-scale clean energy projects across our state.

    Rooftop by rooftop, communities across Queensland are nudging our sunshine state towards a sun-powered future. In fact, Queenslanders are world leaders at harvesting sunshine! But right now, too many people don't have access to clean energy. They are being left behind with dirty old energy that’s damaging our climate and harming our communities.

    We know we need to cut pollution and shift to clean energy, fast. To make this happen – and enable everyone, everywhere, to power their lives with clean energy – our government must step up and lead. Together, lets move Queensland out of the dirty energy past and into the clean energy future.

    Sign the pledge below and show your support for a Sun-Powered Queensland.

    It's time to shine!

  • signed Save SEQ Koalas 2017-04-04 13:56:17 +1000
    Its hard to imagine our government can allow such wanton clearing of wildlife habitat. Our government must implement a moratorium on land clearing in south east Queensland, prioritise koala habitat and protection – koalas are just representative of all other wildlife also destroyed by indiscriminate land clearing. Australia land clearing rate is one of the highest in the world. It would be helpful if our government was cognisan of its own Bureau of Statistics information on the subject. Australians are truly fed up with the inefficiency, greed and duplicity of our successive governments. Our government seems to be totally out of touch with its constituents.

    Sign the petition: Palaszczuk government, save SEQ Koalas

    Stand with us in calling on the Palaszczuk government to stop the clearing of koala habitat in Southeast Queensland. 

    An expert panel report has shown that past efforts to protect the koala, which is Queensland’s official animal emblem, have failed. Up to 80% of the koala population in Southeast Queensland has been lost in just 20 years due to destruction of woodland habitat, traffic issues and domestic dog attacks

    The koala now faces the prospect of extinction in the wild in Southeast Queensland.

    The State Government needs to take urgent action and immediately:

    • implement a moratorium on any clearing in south-east Queensland
    • declare the koala ‘Endangered’ in south-east Queensland
    • prioritise koala and habitat protection in new planning rules

    Send a clear message that more needs to be done urgently to protect our state emblem.
