A message from our President:
CCA recently prioritised the objectives that we will focus on this year: we’ll be working with you to campaign for better renewable policies at all levels of government, as well as advocating for no new coal mines, no more CSG and no more deforestation.  There will be opportunities for you to get involved in these campaigns that you’ll hear about soon.
In the meantime, this edition of CCA News includes information about several ways you can continue to be actively engaged in making progress to stop climate change, depending on your personal interests.  For example, from attending films, to signing online petitions or writing to your local MP, to attending rallies or a coal and gas jamboree, there’s something here for everyone!
Thank you all for your continued commitment.  I look forward to working alongside you as we take our message forward.
Kerri-ann Jones
CCA President

A message from our President: 
Welcome to the first edition of CCA News for 2018. 
2017 was a significant year in our ongoing fight to move away from fossil fuels and transition to clean energy.  Millions of dollars were divested from fossil fuels, and major banks moved away from coal and the proposed Adani coal mine.  In NSW, the proposed Rocky Hill mine near Gloucester was knocked back by the Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) and AGL confirmed it would close the Liddell coal power plant.  But emissions are still too high and need to come down fast.  So, this year should be just as big as 2017 as we take on Australia's biggest polluters for a fossil-free future. 
The CCA Committee looks forward to working with you all to help us move to a safe climate and energy security for all
