We want Australia to be a better neighbour in our region and to stop pushing a development approach on our neighbouring countries that undermines human rights, peoples’ livelihoods, or the ecosystems on which these livelihoods ultimately rely. To do this, we advocate for reforms needed to ensure that Australian government policies and corporate practices support community wellbeing and a just and sustainable economy.
From improving Australia’s aid and development policies and enhancing grievance mechanisms for impacted communities, to preventing government agencies from financing extractive industry projects – Jubilee Australia is working on changing Australia for the better.
"I support Jubilee Australia because of its ongoing commitment to social and environmental justice. The conditions that many of our near-neighbours live are neither accidental nor inevitable, and the work to bring clarity and accountability to the policies and behaviours of governments and corporations in our region is vital."
