A Green New Deal means beating the climate crisis, creating a fairer economy and a more equal society, together.

Australia is facing an environmental, social and economic crisis.  

We are in a climate emergency. The science is in and it is clear – we must urgently move to a zero carbon society. Yet our government continues to expand rather than phase out the biggest source of climate pollution: the mining, burning and exporting of coal, oil and gas.

To make matters worse, too many of us are not getting a fair go: studying hard and completing university or TAFE too often ends in underemployment, job insecurity and low pay. And, if you’re lucky enough to land a good job, chances are you still can’t afford a house because the government has rigged the housing market against you.

It doesn’t have to be this way. 

We need a Green New Deal to tackle social and economic inequality, while taking the action scientists say is necessary to beat the climate crisis. 

A Green New Deal is a government-led plan of investment and action to build a clean economy and a caring society. Under a Green New Deal, government takes the lead in creating new jobs and industries, and delivering universal services to ensure nobody is left behind. A Green New Deal is a massive opportunity to solve the climate crisis and to ensure everyone has a good life.  

It feels big, and it is. But it’s possible. We have everything we need to make the transition and create a fairer, cleaner future. But we need people like you with us. This isn’t just a Green New Deal for Australia. It’s yours too. Over the next few months, we’re running sessions all over the country to hear what you think needs to be included in a Green New Deal. 

So what do you say, are you ready to add your voice to a Green New Deal?
