Energy Justice Victoria

Who are we?

Energy Justice is a collective of Friends of the Earth (FoE) Melbourne that is campaigning against new and existing coal and gas projects in Victoria, and pushing for a socially just transition to clean, fair and affordable energy for all.

We used to be called the Quit Coal collective; you can see our previous work here and read about our name change here.

We are a volunteer led, anti-hierarchical, consensus-based collective who are dedicated to working with communities across the state.  We continue to build strong relationships with regional groups who hold an integral voice on the changes needed to our energy system.

What would the world look like with energy justice?

An energy sector finally free from new fossil fuel and nuclear projects, one powered by a diversified grid of renewable energy that is accessible and affordable to all

Coal and gas affected communities supported through a fair and just transition with good, secure jobs and opportunities

Community ownership and control of energy projects and retailers, putting the power back in people's hands and away from corporate profiteering
