Kiama-SouthCoast Jobs Plan launched

Jobs LaunchTerry (Kiama) and Amanda (South Coast) strongly support local opportunities for long-term work and their plan is to build rewarding sustainable jobs in the South Coast and Kiama.

This is the first time the GREENS have developed a Jobs Plan specifically for our region. The plan includes a comprehensive range of strategies that are targeted at both protecting existing jobs as well as creating new ones.

The GREENS JOB PLAN includes strategies for;

  • a regional renewal plan
  • a renewable energy future
  • education for a skilled workforce
  • jobs in sustainable urban development
  • jobs in health
  • jobs in public transport
  • jobs in sustainable food production
  • and more…

We enjoy the benefits of living and working in this beautiful part of the world and recognise the challenge to diversify the local economy and provide meaningful, long-term work for local residents.

“This requires public and private investment in sustainable economic activities that protect our valuable environmental assets, provide the education and training opportunities needed to transition to a renewable energy future and build connected communities that are happy and healthy places in which to live, work and play,” said Amanda.

“The Greens will work on initiatives to help address unemployment and the social impacts it causes,” said Terry, “It will require cooperation between the community, government and business, education and training providers. Our plan is innovative and requires a commitment to long-term planning to achieve a sustainable and fairer future for everyone living in the Kiama and South Coast electorates.”

Unfortunately, the Coalition’s “growth at any cost” approach will see local communities, already suffering from high levels of unemployment, come under even greater pressure. More local jobs will go as the traditional base for local employment is destroyed.

The Greens recognise the importance of the principles of Ecologically Sustainable Development in planning for the future. Equally important is the need to quickly capture the job opportunities provided by the new energy economy.

The policies referenced in the Jobs Plan are:

  • Regional Renewal
  • Economic Policy
  • Secure Energy Policy
  • Public Transport and Infrastructure
  • Westconnex
  • Public Funding of TAFE Education
  • Health
  • Jobs Growth in a Clean Economy
  • Housing Affordability
  • Privatisation and Public-Assets
  • Protecting Native Forests
  • Housing and Homelessness
  • Biodiversity
  • Waste Elimination
  • Water (Rural and Agricultural)
  • Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Land Use
  • Arts and Creative Industries
  • Tourism and Visitors

For details of these policies please go to the Greens Kiama electorate Jobs website (http://kiama2015.kiamagreens.org.au/jobs/) and click on the relevant policy from the list in the “Greens Policies supporting new and existing jobs” box.
