Introduction | Sustainable Australia Party
Sustainable Australia Party is an independent community movement from the political centre, with a positive plan for an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable Australia. We believe in a science and evidence-based approach to policy - not an extreme left or right ideology.
Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This requires us to operate our society and economy within environmental limits.
Unfortunately, due to unsustainable growth in resource consumption and population, we ARE now compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. To address this unsustainable growth, we need to think globally and act locally.
The problem in Australia?
Australia's political system has been corrupted by vested interests, including powerful property developer lobby groups.
Our politicians lack long-term policy vision and generally push the folly of unlimited growth including sprawl and high-rise overdevelopment in order to repay these vested interests.
SAP's policy plan?
For starters, SAP is campaigning to:
More broadly, our comprehensive policy platform outlines our vision for an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable Australia - including a sustainable environment, better planning, affordable housing and secure jobs.
Unfortunately, because SAP supports a more sustainable population policy for Australia - based on clear environmental science - that will require us to return our recently high (post-2000) annual immigration levels back to normal, political opponents and ideologues sometimes misrepresent this as 'anti-immigration' or worse.
Misrepresentations mainly come from parts of The Greens and to a lesser extent Labor. Former Federal Shadow Minister for the Environment Kelvin Thomson - who joined SAP in 2019 - addresses and rejects this myth here.
Join today to help us protect our environment, stop overdevelopment and stop corruption.
Let's end the mismanagement of our beautiful, yet arid and ecologically fragile continent - both for us and future generations of Australians.
