Adelaide wants a Clean Recovery now!
2020 has been a rough year for Adelaide. Bushfires devastated nearby communities and now a global pandemic has left one in four Australians without reliable work.
We need a recovery that sets course for a bright future, creating jobs, boosting our economy and protecting our planet. That’s why residents in Adelaide are coming together to call for a Clean Recovery.
We’re asking the Morrison Government to:
- Make Australia a clean energy superpower
- Repower businesses and households with solar
- Upgrade public buildings and homes to be more efficient
- Create jobs in landscape management and rehabilitation
- Charge Australia’s electric vehicle future.
Read the full report on why these asks would help our local community here:
Why is this important?
Here in Adelaide, we have so many opportunities to create jobs in work caring for our planet, while making our lives more affordable.
We can create jobs bringing local ecosystems back to life, such as restoring the sand dunes around Holdfast Bay, or protecting our native Grey Box Woodland from invasive species.
We can create jobs planting trees and installing better shading to keep us cool on Adelaide’s streets, where bitumen and concrete absorb and reflect the sun’s heat making them unbearable on a hot summer's day.
And with our sunshine, we can lower power prices for our businesses and homes with solar.
If we work together to get the recovery right, we have a bright future ahead.
Will you join the call for clean, affordable energy and climate-friendly jobs?
