SEQ needs you – Join our fight to create a more resilient region

It’s time to flip government disaster relief funding from reactive clean-up to proactive mitigation projects. With your help we can create a disaster resilient region.

The time has come to show your support for South East Queensland and turn the current ineffective and outdated system around.

To create disaster resilient regions, we must have proactive investment in on-ground projects that increase resilience/reduce flood risk and enhance waterways and landscapes, rather than governments simply pouring millions into clean up and recovery after the event.

SEQ needs YOU. Here’s how you can help.

  • Sign our petition to pressure governments and show investors the importance of their impact by being part of the solution before disaster strikes with disaster preparedness strategies including on-ground projects to minimise the impact of future extreme events.
  • Share your story with us online using the hashtag #SEQneedsYOU to remind others that the impact of natural disasters in SEQ is an issue that affects everyone and urgently needs to be addressed.
  • Send this to others to spread the word and keep the attention on this important issue before, during and after the federal election.
  • Safeguard our lifestyle for current and future generations by caring for our unique and beautiful land, waterways and wildlife.
