Our Vision for Victoria's Forests

We organise alongside grassroots environment groups, First Nations custodians, and regional advocates for a faster, fairer transition for forest industry workers in order to end native forest logging and clear the way for environmentally sound and socially just alternatives.  The state government’s current transition plan out of native forest logging by 2030 offers communities too little and comes far too late. VicForests are going hell-for-leather and destroying our last remaining forests while they can, compromising the long-term wellbeing of all Victorians in a time of climate and economic crisis.”

We believe that by supporting grassroots people in affected areas, we can end native forest logging while creating socially just outcomes for First Nations custodians, forest industry workers, regional communities, and all Victorians vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

End native forest logging to protect endangered ecosystems, threatened wildlife, cultural heritage and all Victorian communities vulnerable to climate impacts like bushfire and water insecurity. 


Support existing grassroots environment groups working tirelessly to defend their local state forests.


Amplify the voices of Sovereign First Nations custodians calling for self-determination, justice, and decision making power regarding the future management of Country.


Organise with regional workers promoting a rapid, just transition toward ecologically sound alternatives that will help mitigate climate change, preserve wildlife, and support thriving regional communities.


Fund citizen science training and expeditions so that community groups across the state can connect with the forest, identify and protect threatened species, and develop detailed knowledge of their local ecosystems.

 

Victoria’s ash forests store more carbon than any other studied forest in the world. They are a lifeline in the midst of climate disaster and global upheaval due to extreme weather events.
