Far North Queensland wants Climate Action Now!
We are at a critical point in our fight to protect our communities and save our beautiful natural environment from climate change. The best science tells us that Australia needs to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 75% below 2005 levels by 2030; and to reach zero emissions by 2035. But neither our Federal government nor our State government have made sufficient commitments to do so. There is still time to act – but it is running out fast!
That’s why we need to demonstrate that FNQ wants bold action on climate. We want our decision-makers to see the call for ‘Climate Action Now’ with bright yellow signs visible across our region! We have a range of sizes available to suit your needs, so you can put a sign up on your fence, gate, letterbox, wheelie bin, apartment balcony, or at your office or local business.
Learn more about the history of the Climate Action Now movement here.
Not in Far North Queensland? No worries! The #ClimateActionNow movement is happening all over the country! Our friends at the Queensland Conservation Council (QCC) will post a sign anywhere in Australia for just $10 – you can order yours here.

Let the Queensland Premier know we CAN do better!
Scientists tell us that Australia must reduce emissions by 75% below 2005 levels by 2030; and reach net zero emissions by 2035 in order to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius. This would reduce the potential for devastating and irreversible damage to the our coastal and island communities, the Great Barrier Reef, our ancient rainforests, and our nature-based economy.
Queensland is lagging far behind other states with an emissions reduction target of 30% by 2030 – which puts us on a climate trajectory that would be detrimental for our region. But the latest report on Queensland’s climate policy tells us that Queensland could double its ambition to reduce emissions by 60% by 2030 while creating ~87,000 jobs! Read the report here.
Sign our petition and write to the Queensland Premier to let her know that you want Queensland to be a leader in climate action, not a laggard! Download our letter template below and add some details about you, then send it to the Premier. Learn more by watching our webinar, What’s Next For Our Climate?
