    Vision for the Valley - Help Make it Possible

    Please donate to help AYCC volunteers in Victoria's Latrobe Valley to lead a community forum and craft a Vision for the Valley beyond coal.

    “What happens when the coal-fired power stations close?” This is a huge question facing the Latrobe Valley - and young people in the region are leading the way in creating solutions. That’s why we’re so excited to be organising the Vision for the Valley forum - a chance for all community members to come together and learn from the experiences of other regions transitioning from coal jobs to diverse forms of work.

    Your donation will help make sure we can:

    • Cover transport for leaders from the successful Repower Port Augusta campaign to travel to the Valley and share their experiences
    • Organise venue hire and catering, plus posters and ads to promote the event
    • Keep supporting A New Power, and other local climate action groups nationwide with the training and resources to advocate for their future

    Thanks so much for sharing our vision and standing alongside young leaders.

    Help put this billboard up in Brisbane!

    $12,693.00 raised
    GOAL: $12,000.00


    The Premier of Queensland is supposed to look after our Great Barrier Reef. But right now, Annastacia Palaszczuk is doing the exact opposite.

    So we have a message to show her, a message that is impossible to ignore. And we’re going to put it up in Brisbane for hundreds of thousands of people to see.

    Will you make a tax-deductible donation to put up this hard hitting billboard next week in the Brisbane CBD? We just need $4000 extra to make it a reality.

    Together we can stop the relentless expansion of coal in this country if we stop Adani’s climate wrecking mine from going ahead. Right now we are at a critical point in this campaign, Adani are strapped for cash, so we need to make sure we do everything we can to stop the flow of taxpayer money to a multi-national coal company - Palaszczuk has the power to do this.

    Put this ad right under Jay Weatherill's nose

    $7,133.00 raised
    GOAL: $7,500.00

    24-hour solar power - that’s the dream right? Jay Weatherill has the power to get it done, but right now, SA’s energy is the middle of the national energy debate, fuelled by Turnbull and his out of date fossil fuel mates.

    The State Government has just announced $150 million dollars for new renewable energy storage tech (great!), and funds for a new gas-fired station and fracking for SA (not great!). The Premier also announced the State Government would use it's power purchase to support a new power station in SA and they'd announce it by June - the only real solution is 24-hour solar thermal power for Port Augusta.

    Put this ad in the Advertiser so the message is right under Jay's nose, and put the pressure on him and Malcolm Turnbull to make solar thermal happen:

    Westpac, don't bank on coal

    $1,528.00 raised
    GOAL: $5,000.00

    How do we #StopAdani's dangerous coal mine from destroying our shot at a safe climate future? We stop banks from funding it. 

    Young people across the country have a cunning plan to pressure Westpac to do the right thing and turn their back on Adani. 

    We know the Westpac board hate it when we talk to their staff, customers and use their brand against them. So that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

    Across the country, young people are gearing up to adopt their local Westpac branch, having conversations with staff, putting up stickers and posters around their community and holding weekly actions to send a powerful message to the board - dump Adani, and don't bank on coal. 

    If you donate $40, we'll post you a photo of young people from your state taking on Westpac in style, so you can see exactly what your donation made possible.
