Join the Jamboree!

Unprecedented coral bleaching. The hottest days on record. The biggest storms in history. And still, Australia exports more coal and gas than any country on Earth.

People everywhere are rising up to fight: taking on billionaire coal companies; closing coal plants and firing up clean energy projects; and halting gas fracking to protect land and water.

From the evening of Thursday 31 May to the afternoon of Sunday 3 June 2018, hundreds of people leading these fights are coming together on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast for the Beyond Coal and Gas Jamboree!

We must build an even more powerful movement. Will you join us?

Hear from Aboriginal activists fighting for country; inspiring Australian and international grassroots activists; learn new skills; share your experiences; and together, let’s build strategies to power Australia beyond coal and gas.

Tickets are on sale now!

Keep up to date with Beyond Coal and Gas at our Facebook event page.  

Program and Speakers

The program will offer three days of exciting national and international speakers, workshops and plenaries. There’ll also be open spaces so you can define the workshops you want to see.

We’re also leaving plenty of time and space for hanging out and having fun, with evening entertainment and opportunities to build and strengthen friendships.

We have started to announce our program, and an exciting line-up of home-grown and international speakers who will be joining us! Take a look here.
