Beyond Coal and Gas is the national gathering of communities from across Australia working to move beyond coal and gas. Bringing together people from one end of Australia to the other, it is a rare and important opportunity for communities to come together, share experiences and to learn from one another. Registration is now open!

The program for the 2016 gathering will be an exciting line up of National and International speakers, workshops and plenaries. The major theme for the conference this year is The Transition is Now and will feature case studies on the transition away from coal and gas. The program will also cover major themes of the movement beyond coal and gas, including health, renewables, finance and economics, coal closure and rehab and plenty of practical workshops on skills development. As with previous years, a large portion of the program will be open spaces to allow participants to define the workshops they want to see at the conference. If you would like to submit a workshop, you can head over to the Program page.

The gathering is an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of the coal and gas movement across Australia, to broaden and deepen relationships across the movement and to learn from each other. There will be an opportunity at registration to submit picture or your ideas for how you would like to acknowledge and celebrate our great achievements from 2015.
