BACG Jamboree | Sunshine Coast | 31 May - 3 June 2018

Join the Jamboree!

The 2018 Beyond Coal and Gas Jamboree is not to be missed (early bird registration is open now!).

Beyond Coal and Gas is where you’ll hear from Aboriginal activists fighting for country, and inspiring Australian and international grassroot activists. You’ll learn new skills, share your experiences and together, we’ll build strategies to power Australia beyond coal and gas.

Relationships are what make our movement powerful; nothing beats spending focussed time together to forge new connections across campaigns.

We’ve taken some giant strides in the task of transitioning Australia beyond fossil fuels since the 2016 conference. 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.

And yet, Australia still exports more coal and gas than any country on Earth: we have so much work yet to do in order to build our movement to the scale we need to win..

WHEN:
Evening of Thursday, 31 May, through to afternoon of Sunday, 3 June 2018
WHERE:
Alexandra Park Conference Centre Sunshine Coast, Queensland (just 15 minutes from Sunshine Coast airport)
COST:
$43.29 – $159.34
TICKETS:
Early bird registrations open now, until 31 March 2018 (save around 20% off the full price!)
