Go Fossil Free!
Together we're cutting the flow of money to new gas projects and undermining the social license of the industry.
Across the continent, activists are working together to shift financial institutions away from oil & gas so we can stop massive gas basins that threaten our climate and communities.
We know that tax-dodging gas companies have too much power over our politicians, and our community events, so we're also fighting end partnerships with fossil gas companies on arts and sports events, and shifting the gas industry's narrative that their toxic product has any role in the transition to renewable energy.
Our Islands Our Home
Zenadth Kes (the Torres Strait Islands & surrounding seas) is home to Traditional Owners who have lived with a deep connection to land, sea, sky and culture for over 60,000 years.
Right now, Torres Strait Islanders are on the frontlines of the climate crisis and urgent action is needed to ensure they can remain on their homelands. Advancing seas are already threatening homes, as well as damaging fresh water supplies, crops, burial grounds and sacred cultural sites.
Our Islands Our Home is a campaign led by Torres Strait Islanders to protect their island homes.
350.org Australia aims to rapidly end fossil fuels by building a global climate movement.
The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a liveable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 415 parts per million to below 350 ppm.
We believe that a global grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. The movement is rising from the ground up all over the world and is uniting to create the solutions that will create a better future for all. 350.org Australia is a not-for-profit project helping build this movement from our corner of the globe.
Together we can build our collective power to win campaigns

7 October 2021: A push by the Federal Nationals to create a $250 billion fund for fossil fuel companies is wildly irresponsible according to climate activist group 350 Australia.
According to media reports this morning, Resources Minister Keith Pitt is pushing to create a $250 billion loan facility for coal and mining corporations in exchange for supporting a net zero emissions target by 2050.
Last week Ross McEwan, the CEO of NAB, fronted up to the Australian Parliament. When he was asked about the bank’s oil and gas policy review, he said they will be measuring their policy against the conclusions of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) ‘Net Zero by 2050’ scenario.
If Ross really means it, this could be huge: the IEA report states that there must be no new fossil fuel investments after 2021.
We often talk about the revolving door between the fossil fuel lobby and politics – but what about between coal, oil and gas corporations and the finance sector?
Corporations like to overwhelm us with their climate credentials in the form of policy documents and long-term targets – but often the gloss is hiding ongoing profit making from climate chaos.
Climate conflicts and the big four Australian banks
The big four banks in Australia have all made commitments to align their lending with the goal of limiting climate change to 1.5 degrees – but according to Market Forces, they have provided more than $35 billion in funding to fossil fuels between 2016 and 2019.
You’ve probably heard the saying many times over, that “climate change is union business”. Climate change is union business for the impact it has on workers and our workplaces, and that workers will of course be on the frontline to the most devastating impacts – it won’t be the bosses.
