In the lead-up to the 2016 federal election on 2 July, Environment Victoria volunteers played a major role in putting the environment on the agenda. Here are the numbers from two marginal seats in Victoria, Deakin (around Ringwood and Mitcham) and Dunkley (around Frankston).
In May 2016, we released a “Promise Watch” site to help journalists and citizens track the environment and climate change commitments of the major parties. The site tracked policy commitments by the Coalition, Labor and the Greens relevant to three policy categories: (1) a plan to power Australia with clean energy; (2) a plan for cutting pollution; and (3) a plan for protecting and restoring nature.
