Introduction to SAP

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 support a science and evidence-based approach to policy - not a left or right wing ideology.

Sustainable Australia Party has developed a broad policy platform to address Australia's growing economic, environmental and social problems.

For starters, Sustainable Australia Party is campaigning to:

  • Protect our environment
  • Stop overdevelopment
  • Stop corruption

There's much more in our broad policy platform, including policies to deliver affordable housing, efficient public transport and a more diverse and self-sufficient economy.

Redefining growth

Importantly, Sustainable Australia Party is the only political party to challenge the folly of unlimited growth in both resource consumption and population - the twin drivers of Australia's growing environmental problems according to our major scientific reports.

Sustainable Australia Party prioritises growth in health and wellbeing - including growth in the health of our environment, education standards, job opportunities, housing affordability and democracy - over so-called 'economic growth' as measured by the crude economic statistic known as 'aggregate GDP'.

The current aggregate GDP 'growth' agenda is driven by greed and the related corruption of Australia's political system by vested interests - and is lowering Australia’s per capita living standards.

Sustainable Australia Party is redefining growth to mean better, not bigger.

Housing is a fundamental need and human right. Perversely, homes are now treated as an investment asset by governments rather than a shelter in which to live and/or raise a family.

KELVIN'S BLOG: Bring back the CES

I was interested to see both Peter Strong from the Council of Small Business Association, and Leith van Onselen from MacroBusiness, calling for the restoration of the old Commonwealth Employment Service (CES). It is a view I have had myself for quite some time.
