To solve the climate crisis, we need a movement more powerful than those who wish to pollute our planet. Sign up here and you’ll be part of a movement fighting to create a better world by keeping fossil fuels in the ground and acting in solidarity with the Torres Strait.

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

The Morrison Government legacy gas handouts
In early 2020 the Morrison Government stacked their “covid-recovery commission” with gas executives who advised them to subsidise the gas industry. So we started tracking how much money Angus Taylor and the Morrison Government were promising to polluting gas projects.
What we found
Between 2020 and 2022 the Morrison Government made 25 commitments subsidising the gas industry totalling over $2 billion dollars.
350.org’s scorecard compares lending policies of the big 4 banks to criteria set out by the Oxford Sustainable Finance Group, which produced a briefing paper in March 2022 on the implications of the IEA NZE by 2050 Scenario for Financial Institutions who have committed to Net Zero Emissions
*NAB’s policy says: “We will only consider directly financing greenfield gas extraction in Australia where it plays a role in underpinning national energy security”; “We will not directly finance greenfield gas extraction projects outside Australia”; and “We will not directly finance greenfield oil extraction projects or onboard new customers with a predominant focus on oil extraction”
** The latest climate science shows that we need to reach net-zero emissions far sooner than 2050, with Australian emissions needing to be at net zero by 2035 at the latest.
We recently received a letter from lawyers acting on behalf of Empire Energy, in regard to our video uploaded to Facebook titled “reckless Empire Energy”. In the interests of transparency, we are publishing correspondence related to this matter:
Scott Morrison has officially announced a net zero target by 2050, but no new 2030 target, and no change to his Government’s dangerous pro-fossil fuels agenda.
This is the climate policy equivalent of showing up late to a party, refusing to bring what the host asked you to, and then trying to ruin the party for everyone.
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.
