As Australia’s national environment group, ACF weaves local efforts with a national approach to the big issues. We do this so life can thrive all across the country.
We spark change, tell the truth, bring unlikely partners together and share big ideas. We hold all political parties to their duty of care. We’re proud to learn from the traditions of Aboriginal people, who cared for life in Australia for tens of thousands of years.
It’s people who make ACF what it is.
The scientists who realised what limestone mining on the reef meant, the unionists who refused to develop historic urban precincts, the poets who spoke out for our forests, the Traditional Owners who said no to uranium riches and toxic pollution and the musicians who stood beside them. And for decades, the donors who make it all possible, and the volunteers who make the banners, write the letters and run the events.
We thank our community who are the heartbeat of our organisation. Your support means ACF can be fiercely independent.
Our goal is nothing short of a future where water flows clean, we care for country and communities share in abundant energy from the sun and wind.
We threw ACF 50th birthday shindigs across Australia in November to honour our community and thank those who came before us and those who stand with us today.
So here’s to all of you who have signed an ACF petition or called an MP or CEO. All of you who are new members, have been members for a long time or have undertaken the superhuman effort of being on our Board and Council. And all of you who give your time, your money, your passion and with us share your hopes and your dreams.
ACF might be about protecting nature, but we’ve always been powered by people. We are a community. Our achievements are your achievements. Own them, be proud of them. We thank you for all you have done and will do.
