What happens at the 2018 Victorian state election really matters — it could extend support for building clean energy, cutting pollution and protecting nature. Or it could unravel progress we’ve worked so hard to achieve.
So we’re kicking off our biggest people-powered election campaign ever. Let’s make sure whichever party wins this election, our environment comes out on top.
Find out where the parties stand in our 2018 environment scorecard.
Election 2018 is our chance to speed up the shift to sustainability and make Victoria the leader on climate change that the world so urgently needs.
To do this, we need to transition as quickly as possible to clean renewable energy, cutting greenhouse pollution. And we have to get serious about protecting our forests, rivers and the animals that call them home, in a time of climate change.
In the past few years, Victoria has started to make real progress in the shift from polluting coal to clean energy. We’ve retired old coal-burning power stations, kicked off new wind and solar projects and set a target of 40 percent renewable energy by 2025.
If we can crank it up a notch or two, the momentum will be unstoppable!
But despite vast community support for repowering Victoria with clean energy, some politicians are threatening to unravel this progress.
The Victorian state election is the moment for the community to have our say by demanding ambitious environmental policies and exposing the blockers of clean energy.
