State and Territory governments have the power to ban specific types of projects within their own state, like Victoria did with it’s recent ban on on-shore gas mining, and to encourage others, like ACT’s adoption of ambitious renewable energy targets.
Successful state/territory Climate Emergency Declaration campaigns, or campaigns achieving bans on new climate-damaging projects, could achieve a surprising number of the aims of the nation-wide climate mobilisation campaign.
The first and easiest step in a Climate Emergency response by state/territory governments is to ban NEW climate-damaging projects. Public forum with Q&A about model legislation to ban new climate-damaging projects in SA, why that is urgently necessary, and the implications of doing so.

We’ve launched a petition to the South Australian parliament, the No More Bad Investments (NMBI) petition which asks for a ban on all new climate-damaging projects if safe climate alternatives already exist and a phase-out in other cases. It also seeks planning and implementation policies for rolling out climate-safe and climate-positive alternatives. Click to sign the SA petition.
Please consider starting a similar No More Bad Investments campaign in your own state or territory!
Listen to Philip Sutton on BZE radio explaining the NMBI campaign and model legislation for banning new climate-damaging projects here.
