Take action

Take action for a radically better world.

Whether you're emailing a decision-maker, signing a petition or submitting a public comment...

... you're creating a radically better world.

Taking action matters.

Here's why:

No matter where we live or how much we earn, we all should have a say about decisions that impact us, our families and our environment.

We all have a right to participate.

That's why we're here – to help you have a real say on our laws, policies and regulations. This includes a say in how they're developed, implemented and enforced.

We all have a right to information.

We passionate about helping you access timely and understandable information about environmental policies, projects and risks.

You have a right to know about environmental hazards, pollutants, potential health risks, and the decision making processes of government agencies and industries.

We all should be able to challenge decisions and actions that harm our health, our communities and our environment – and seek legal redress.

When the public responds with a huge outpouring of concern or support for environmental protection, decision makers feel huge pressure to act.

The more of us there are, the louder we become – until we are impossible to ignore!

Governments and agencies often have to ask the public to weigh in before they can make decisions or adopt or change regulations.

That's why we often invite you to share your concerns and personal experiences during government comment periods.

Your public comments go onto the official record, where they shape important government decisions – like how much agencies investigate environmental risks and how much information they release to the public.

When governments make weak or harmful decisions, we can use the public comments you write as powerful evidence in court.

Sign the petition

Call for nature laws that really work.

Right now, across Australia, major and iconic ecosystems are collapsing.

Our current environment laws are weak, broken and full of holes – but right now, we have real opportunity to fix them.

Add your name to the petition and call on the Albanese Government and Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek to implement rigorous reforms to our nature laws that halt the destruction, reverse the decline, and bring nature back.
