LEAN

The Labor Environment Action Network is a grassroots network of ALP members who aim to:

  1. Influence the policies of the ALP and Labor parliamentary caucuses to support strong action on climate change and sustainability based on the science.
  2. Advocate moving to a low carbon economy in a way which reflects Labor’s values of social justice, decent work and strong communities.
  3. Engage and mobilise ALP members around climate change and sustainability.
  4. Develop dialogue and relationships with unions, business, think tanks, environmental NGOs and community organisations committed to action on sustainability and climate change
  5. Promote and grow LEAN and ALP membership throughout Australia

LEAN is a new way for people to become involved in and engage with the Party. We are non-factional, and welcome all Party members committed to learning more about climate change and taking action.

What LEAN does:

  • Organises speakers for ALP Branch meetings to discuss climate change and sustainability
  • Hold regular forums and discussions, often with prominent environmentalists.
  • Circulate resolutions for consideration by branches to promote debate on environmental issues.
  • Develop and campaign for the implementation of policies which reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create green jobs and support ecological sustainability.
