Description

LEAN IS A GRASSROOTS NETWORK OF ALP MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS WHO:

Are concerned for the health of the planet. We care about climate change and the integrity of our natural systems.

Believe Labor is the only progressive party in Australia that can form government and therefore must lead the debate in Australia on environmental policy

Believe climate change threatens all life on earth and demands fundamental change in how we source energy and structure our economy

Assert that Labor's mission must be updated to include environment as a central pillar of its vision. Labor and its mission were formed when environmental concerns were non existant, a reformist party committed to equity must address the environmental imperative.

Believe that good people working hard, collectively can change the culture and direction of the ALP.
