Climate change is the biggest challenge our society and planet face.
We’re proud to have proven that world-leading climate action is possible in Australia, powering the ACT by 100% renewable electricity.
The old parties and status quo are clamouring for a return to normal in the wake of COVID-19.
But we can’t return to a normal that does not urgently address climate change - this would be stepping out of the frying pan and into the fire.
That’s why the ACT election on October 17 is critical to the climate movement. A strong Greens vote will show the Morrison Government and Federal Labor that voters want them to work with the Greens to achieve real climate action.
It’s also an exciting time for climate policy in the ACT. Now that we’ve reached 100% renewable electricity, we can focus on other greenhouse gases and create Australia’s first climate-resilient, green economy and community.
