New South Wales is blessed with rich fertile farmland, clean fresh water and beautiful rural landscapes. But all of that is at risk if we don't choose to safeguard it.

Our land, our water and our health has been damaged by coal and gas mining. Our rural villages torn apart and democracy compromised. 

Get involved in this new campaign to choose one state united across city and country, founded on clean food and water and a safe climate.                                           

The combined impacts of eleven new and expanded coal mine projects in New South Wales is bigger than Adani’s infamous coal mine proposed for Central Queensland. Read more in our report here.

Get involved now to create a sustainable future for our state. A future of vibrant communities and diverse economies with jobs in agriculture, clean energy and knowledge and service industries.
