Take action in your community

Letters to editors and calling talkback

In the upcoming days and weeks there is going to be a dedicated campaign by Abbott, the Coalition and big industry groups such as the Australian Coal Association, to try to wind back any support for renewable energy coming from the carbon price. 

This means its going to be important for people like us and our groups to stand up for action for renewable energy.

Letters to the editor and calling talk back are one of the best ways we can directly challenge the Oppositions negative campaign.

Carbon price response action kit

Thanks to your tireless work in local communities - and the work of other organisations in the movement - we have won a fantastic outcome for renewable energy with new money, new independent bodies and the energy regulator to develop a plan for how the grid can deliver 100% renewable energy!

We are particularly delighted about:

Let’s unlock renewable energy: using your local results

Wednesday 15th of June was a big day for the 100% campaign. Together a delegation from ten local groups handed over the results of over 14,000 conversations to the MPCCC members in Parliament, saw our delegation being swarmed by TV and print cameras and had a number of us feature live on regional and national radio.

National Doorknock to Unlock Clean Energy

On Saturday 28th of May local community groups around Australia will be heading out as part of Australia's first ever National Doorknock to Unlock Clean Energy!

Join the national letter writing group!

Perhaps you’ve noticed the media talking a lot about a carbon price at the moment?  In fact if it weren’t for the Royal Wedding and the return of Masterchef, there wouldn’t be much else in your newspaper.

You might also have noticed that lots of attention on the pollution price it has been pretty negative. Industry has been crying poor and the "debate” is being hijacked by special interests and commentators who can only see our future in terms of a bit less coal and lots more gas.

Make a call on renewable energy

In coming weeks our political leaders will be making decisions that will profoundly affect the face of Australia's energy future.

A strong deal to price pollution with measures to boost investment in renewable energy, could see new renewables projects popping up across the country, while a weak deal that over-compenates polluting industry risks locking in a high pollution future.

Join the campaign with a local launch photo!

Join over 70 community groups across Australia to show your support for renewable energy.

Holding your own local launch is easy, just follow these 4 simple steps:

1. Find a sign with the name of your town or suburb on it (is there a 'welcome to...' sign at the entrance to your town?)

2. Make some placards reading "We support 100% renewable energy for"

3. Gather your supporters, friends and family, together with placards at your town sign
