THE Greens have a Renew Australia plan that will transform Australia’s energy system to one of the cleanest and smartest. With our plan we will transform our economy by driving investment into new renewable projects creating thousands of jobs. We also have a plan to create a home for all, which will build more than 500,000 public and community homes across Australia.
■ Farming sustainability
I’M FROM a small Queensland town that relies on a thriving agricultural sector, so I am all about sustainable agriculture – and so are the Greens. The Greens have more in common with our farmers than the major parties. Our principles are that sustainable agriculture is fundamental to food security, environmental sustainability, and climate change mitigation and adaptation. I will work with farmers and the agricultural sector to ensure their livelihood is sustained.
■ Inland Rail
I WILL fight to ensure that community concerns are considered and acted on when it comes to all development and planning decisions that affect our electorate. This is a huge infrastructure project and it makes sense to move some of the freight task to rail but not at the cost of communities along the path of the Inland Rail.
IF ELECTED, my role is to act in the best interests of all people in the electorate. The Greens have great long-term plans that focus on a sustainable future for the people and environment. When we plan using these principles we will ensure that we are creating a future that benefits us all.
