******** UPDATE ********
Solar Shindig week was a huge success - over a thousand people took part and our message was heard. In the middle of the week-long Shindig the ALP announced a renewable energy goal of 50% by 2030*. This target was then confirmed at conference. This would not have happened without the outpour of support for solar from the community during Shindig week - well done everyone!
We're having a week-long, nationwide party for a sun-powered future and you're invited! From 18-24 July we want to see Solar Citizens like you host a Stand Up For Solar Shindig in your local area and declare that you and your community want our politicians to act and support solar, for real.
Our next big opportunity to influence Australia's solar and clean energy future is the Australian Labor Party's National Conference in late July. We need the ALP to adopt ambitious solar policy and set a strong agenda before the next Federal election. That's why we're taking action with our nationwide Solar Shindig in the lead up.
Below, you'll find a calendar of Solar Shindig events happening around the country - just click on an event near you to RSVP.

It doesn't matter how big or small your Shindig is, whether it's a BBQ or an afternoon tea - just make sure it happens between the 18th - 24th of July, and that you get in touch with your MP to let them know your community wants them to Stand Up For Solar.
