The Latrobe Valley is a Health Innovation Zone, but one of the biggest determinants of physical and mental health is financial security.
Energy transition is happening now and the Valley needs a plan to ensure that workers, their families and the broader community thrive beyond coal.
The Latrobe Valley Authority has done good work but they need more funding, and for longer, to create a full transition plan that protects the community. In Germany communities have been promised billions of Euros over many years to transition from coal to other industries.
Enter your details to sign our petition to Victorian Minister for Regional Development Mary-Anne Thomas requesting funding for the Latrobe Valley Authority to create a full transition plan that revitalises the Latrobe Valley economy and improves community health.
