Solar Our Schools: State of Play

Since July 2020, we have united more than 11,000 parents behind Solar Our Schools - asking the Federal Government to fund solar and batteries for every school and early childhood centre in Australia.

We are now calling on individual states and territories to progress a state and federal partnership on Solar Our Schools.

So far, State Governments have made wildly differing levels of progress towards putting solar and batteries on public schools, with absolutely no support for solar and batteries on independent schools or early childhood centres.

We need your help! Write to your State Education Ministers asking them to work in partnership with the Federal Government, to support funding Solar Our Schools and remove barriers to its implementation.

Click on your location to write a letter to your State's Education Minister: NSW Vic Qld SA WA Tas NT ACT

What else can you do to progress Solar Our Schools?

Make the climate safe: tell your politician you support strong action

We must demand urgent action to secure a safe and liveable future for our children.

 

A small group of politicians are stalling climate action to protect coal and gas profits. We need local representatives that speak for us.

More than 67% of voters believe the federal government needs to be doing more to address climate change. It’s time our the Members of Parliament that represent us turn words into action.

We need to send a strong signal: we care about making the climate safe for our kids.

A federal election could be called at any moment. Right now, MPs and local candidates are listening to what voters care about - that means us.

Add your voice now and empower parents in your electorate to take your support directly to your election candidates.

It's up to us to create the change. Our kids are depending on us. We can’t sit this one out.
