Introduction | Sustainable Australia
Sustainable Australia is an independent party from the common-sense political centre, with a positive agenda. We aim to secure an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable Australia.
Sustainable Australia has prioritised four big issues:
- Secure jobs via a more diverse economy
- Affordable housing for first home buyers and renters
- Better planning to stop overdevelopment
- A sustainable environment and population
Over several years, we have carefully developed a comprehensive policy platform and to achieve a sustainable Australia.
The first and simplest key policy step can be done with the stroke of a pen - lower permanent immigration from a record high 200,000+ per year back to the long term average of 70,000 per year. Refugees would still sit within this at the current level of around 14-20,000.
This is not "blaming migrants" or anti-immigration. It is about ending Australia's unsustainable rapid population growth and boosting the chance to achieve secure jobs, affordable housing, better planning and a sustainable environment. It is pro-migrant and pro-immigration, in order to also rebuild and maintain public confidence in the immigration programme. We support sustainable immigration and proudly boast migrants born in many countries and every inhabited continent on Earth in our party. We blame Liberal / National / Labor / Greens / etc politicians and vested interests for this unsustainable policy and its impacts on our infrastructure and environment, not migrants themselves.
Our full 'common sense' policy suite can be found on our Policies page.
We need your help
Over one million Australians voted for our party in their top six Senate choices in the 2016 federal election. We are now using this momentum to launch State parties. We have registered in ACT and NSW. Next stop VIC, QLD, SA, TAS, etc...
Join today and help us build the numbers in your State to end the mismanagement of our beautiful, yet arid and fragile continent - for both us and future generations of Australians.
