While the recently elected Morrison government continues to fail the country on the climate crisis, states like Victoria can show true leadership by stepping up ambition on renewable energy, sustainable transport and more.

Join us for a Yes 2 Renewables info night to learn about our vision for putting the state on the road to 100% Renewable Energy, and how to get involved, step up and help make it a reality.

From building the country's first offshore wind farm Star of the South, powering Melbourne's train network with renewable energy and paving the way for a just transition out of fossil fuel dependence, Victoria has all the tools at hand to transform the economy, create thousands of climate jobs and cut polluting greenhouse gas emissions.

With a state renewable energy target of 50% by 2030 set in place, now is the time to show greater ambition and put Victoria on the road to 100% renewables.

All are welcome, no prior knowledge is required, only passion and enthusiasm!

Food and beverages will be made available, contributions to the campaign are most welcome.

This meeting will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nations. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future and acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded.
