The Greens are standing up for a more sustainable Canberra. A Canberra fit for the 21st Century challenges of a growing population and changing climate.

As part of our vision for a sustainable city, we will work to:

  • Protect and grow Canberra’s urban trees, waterways and greenspaces
  • Build more energy efficient housing
  • Expand our walking and cycling infrastructure

The Greens believe that our planning rules should be changed to provide incentives for better quality housing. To secure a sustainable future for our city, we need to build smaller houses and ensure room is left for trees and gardens to keep our urban areas cool.
