Our Mission

POW Australia helps our outdoor community protect the integrity of Australia’s unique alpine environment and lifestyle from climate change.

Protect Our Winters Australia is a passionate community of outdoor enthusiasts, athletes and industry brands uniting the outdoor community to advocate for policy solutions to climate change. We believe our fragile alpine ecosystem and our love for adventure amongst it, demands our participation in the fight to save it and everything it represents.

Our Vision

Create a future where our alpine playground and the communities and businesses that depend on it still exist.

For our unique alpine playgrounds to remain healthy and resilient and to protect the integrity of Australian winters, we envision a future of net-zero by 2035 where global heating has been limited to 1.5c in line with science based targets.

#75by2030 Petition

The new government is committed to act on climate, but Australia needs more ambition to ensure the longevity of Australia’s snow sports for generations to come.

We urge our government to strengthen its current emission reduction targets from 43% by 2030 to a target that is aligned with what climate science tells us is necessary: 75% by 2030.

Send Prime Minister – Anthony Albanese, and Climate Change & Energy Minister – Chris Bowen, a message calling for stronger action of #75by2030.
