Our Solutions

Citizens’ Climate Lobby Australia solutions are compatible with all sides of politics and will build bipartisanship

Carbon Fee and Dividend

By building constructive, working relationships with Members of Parliament we seek the passage of Australian Carbon Fee and Dividend legislation, a climate solution and solution accelerator that bridges the partisan divide. Carbon Fee and Dividend is a revenue-neutral carbon tax with 100% of the net revenue returned directly to households that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically while growing the economy and saving lives.

Citizen Engagement

Governments will respond to the will of the people provided we tell them what we want. And what we want is a liveable world. This is what Citizens’ Climate Lobby works for. To empower citizens to connect with and inspire their own Members of Parliament. To spread the idea that each one of us can address climate change and accelerate climate solutions. Working together we can make this happen.

Our Approach

Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s approach is relationship based

In order to generate the political will necessary for accelerating climate solutions required to secure a liveable world, we train and support volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and the local community. Our consistently respectful, non-partisan approach to climate education is designed to create a broad, sustainable foundation for climate action across all socioeconomic groups, geographic regions and political parties.

By building upon shared values rather than partisan divides, and empowering our supporters to work in keeping with the concerns of their local communities, we work towards the adoption of fair, effective, and sustainable climate change solutions.

Citizens Climate Lobby Australia started in 2014. We have members in 130 of the 150 Federal electorates. Our parent organisation, Citizens Climate Lobby began in the United States on October 7, 2007, and now has over 84,000 supporters worldwide in 31 countries.
