Queensland Initiatives

qld INITIATIVES

At the moment it seems like politics is completely disconnected from the things we actually care about. On issues like housing affordability, cost of electricity, public infrastructure, getting the big money out of decision-making and the recession up north, not enough is being done to represent the interests of Queenslanders.

Politicians often engage in petty point scoring without actually addressing issues that matter. They take money from corporations, casinos and developers and govern for the highest bidders.

We can change this. Our initiatives for the state election focus on the issues that matter to you. Check them out.

Right now, for many families, early education and childcare is just for those who can afford to pay. It should be public, universal, and free.

We'll invest $10 billion over five years in public infrastructure like schools, hospitals, green space and public transport that we desperately need to create a jobs and investment boom across Queensland.

Banks and property developers, with the help of Labor and the LNP, have rigged the housing system against Queenslanders. It's time to tax properties left deliberately vacant in order to build affordable housing 

The Greens support emergency measures to protect all native wildlife and ecosystems from coal and gas mining, property development and other threats. 

Queenslanders deserve a break. The Queensland Greens will create four new public holidays, bringing the total to sixteen days per year

Adani intends to build the largest coal mine in Australia. The Greens will not stop until this mine is stopped. Invest in renewables, not fossil fuels.

Think public transport is too expensive? We hear you. The Queensland Greens have a plan to deliver a better, cheaper Public Transport network for Queensland.

Across Queensland, residents have lost control of their neighbourhoods. The Greens would fundamentally transform and democratise our planning system.

Queenslanders are doing it tough. Multi-national mining corporations should be made to pay their fair share.

It’s pretty simple: we want an energy system run for people, not profit.

It’s common sense that health care and education are universal and free - because they are basic necessities that we all need to live a good life.

Not everyone can afford to buy a house, but we all deserve a place to call home.

Whether it’s millions of dollars in donations, special cash meetings or cushy lobbyists jobs for retiring politicians, Labor and LNP politicians represent their big corporate mates - not Queenslanders.
