South Australia - Over 20 volunteers in Adelaide took the 25,000 signatures to Penny Wong’s office and met with her in person to deliver them. Over 5000 of the signatures have been collected in the schools, streets and universities of South Australia, so it’s a clear demonstration that community supports investment in 100% renewable energy.

100% Renewable Energy Goal:
100% Renewable Power in Australia
Repower Australia is a campaign being led by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) that is calling on Australia to switch to 100% renewable power. The campaign offers detailed instructions for how youth can organize to get their communities to make the switch, as well as a petition urging nations to shift to renewable energy. As their website states, "Rather than waiting for our politicians to make it happen, we're getting started ourselves!"
