Your voice is needed!
Since 2014 not one mining or gas project has been rejected even though there are laws that are meant to protect Queensland’s best farmland, tourism icons and communities(1). The laws aren't working and they need to change!
Over the coming weeks, politicians are formulating their priorities for the next term of government. Right now they need to hear from people all over Queensland, from the city, the coast, and the bush. Will you be part of the plan to protect our best farmland, significant cultural heritage sites, water resources and local communities?
Here are 5 ways you can be involved...
1. Take Action Today and sign our petition.
We're asking to reform the Regional Planning Interest Act to stop mining and unconventional gas encroaching on our precious farmland and critical water catchments.
2. Call your local MP and discuss your concerns.
It may seem scary - but our MPs want to hear from their constituents. That means you! You may not get to speak to your MP directly. That’s OK. The staff will be very happy to take a message for you and pass it on.
3. Order a free Plan to Grow Pack - and put up the signs and stickers included.
By sticking a sticker on your car, putting up a sign on your fence and sharing some flyers in your local area you will help build the groundswell that can’t be ignored!
4. Volunteer for Plan to Grow to help us connect others!
Comfortable and safe weekly team volunteering from home. We appreciate as much or as little time as you have available.
5. Collect Petition Signatures
Print and ask your friends, family and neighbours to sign. To return scan or take a pic of the petition sheet and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or post the original to Plan to Grow, 17B, 373 Kent St, Maryborough, 4650.
It is essential we strike the balance between mining and regional development, once and for all. We need you to ensure our elected representatives work to protect and preserve Queensland’s best farmlands, our life-giving water and our beloved communities.
With your help we can stop mining and unconventional gas encroaching on our precious places.
