“The real choice is not jobs or environment. It is both or neither.” – Canadian activist Brian Kohler Our group was founded in February 2020 following the Sustainable Prosperity Conference, held in Adelaide 10th -12th January 2020. We have a new home at the Joinery, Adelaide’s conservation hub, at 111 Franklin Street. Our activities include running educational events and discussion forums, engaging with elected members at all levels of government as well as union leaders, environmentalists, economists and the media. Our 2021 series of monthly Zoom talks will begin in March. We also promote and distribute Stephanie Kelton’s book The Deficit Myth. New members are always welcome! (sourced 9/1/2022 from

Our Vision: A thriving economy providing for the needs of the people and living within the means of the planet.
Our Mission: We are a grassroots group of activists campaigning for urgent climate action and better economic and social justice in Australia.
Our current objectives: A rapid and just transition to 100% renewable energy. This means:
– Net zero emissions by 2030
– No new fossil fuel projects, a planned phase out of current fossil fuels and an end to fossil fuel subsidies
– A planned phase out of current fossil fuel power generation
– A just transition and fair compensation for workers in fossil fuel and related industries

Reducing inequality and improving wellbeing for all Australians and especially those in need. This means:
– Providing meaningful work for all who want it through a federally funded Job Guarantee
– A post pandemic economic recovery focussed on local projects which create jobs and provide lasting benefits for our communities
– Recognition, treaty and a voice to parliament for First Nations peoples

We do this through:
– Learning from the experts and evidence based research
– Empowering our members with skills and support
– Promoting these policies through grassroots, local campaigns

Rethinking Capitalism School
Economics as if people and the environment matter. This two-day seminar covers the most pressing economic issues facing Australia today: inequality, insecurity, climate change, grey corruption, the federal budget and a campaign for a fairer and more sustainable economy, drawn from modern monetary theory and ecological economics. Please contact us to find out about future sessions.

Job Guarantee
Everywhere you look there are opportunities to connect the untapped potential of people with the unmet needs of the community. A federally funded Job Guarantee returns Australia to full employment, giving everyone who wants it, access to meaningful, sustainable, fairly paid work. It also provides some – but not all – of the massive scale of effort we will need to combat climate change in the near future.

Modern Monetary Theory
“Deficits can be used for good or evil. They can enrich a small segment of the population, driving income and wealth inequality to new heights, while leaving millions behind. They can fund unjust wars that destabilise the world and cost millions their lives. Or they can be used to sustain life and build a more just economy that works for the many and not just the few.” – Professor Stephanie Kelton, Economist.
