ACT Election 2020
The ACT has the opportunity to become a world leading climate-resilient region that is powered by a circular economy. We have the opportunity to protect our unique natural treasures for current and future generations. But we must be ambitious and we must act now.
We’ve outlined our priorities for all candidates and parties across climate, nature, water, transport, waste and urban sustainability.
We need as many Canberrans as possible asking all election candidates to step up for the future of our city. Our handy campaign action guides will help you to take action during the 2020 election campaign and beyond.
The Conservation Council ACT Region is the peak environment body in the ACT.
We advocate, campaign, and engage with the community to protect our local environment.
Join us to help build a brighter future.
Based on the latest IPCC report in 2018, we have less than 10 years to plateau and begin to turn emissions downwards. From this advice, we can conclude that the ACT’s 2045 net zero emissions target is no longer aligned with climate science.
We are looking for volunteers to contribute to our events, campaigns and communications.
