Independents For Climate Action Now (ICAN) is an Australian political party which was registered on 10 April 2019.[2] It seeks to prosecute policies relating to climate change, such as planning for climate change related emergencies and phasing out fossil fuels to replace with renewable energy.[3]

ICAN aims to: Disrupt Australia’s party based political system by making climate change a non-partisan issue. Provide additional voting options for the 60% of Australians who want ‘effective action on climate change even if it costs us economically’ (Lowy Institute 2018). Put major parties on notice that their climate policies do not reflect the science in terms of addressing the climate emergency. Move the balance of power to a broad political block of climate action committed independents. Raise the profile of the climate emergency amongst the Australian electorate. Put our nation on a path toward collaborative international action that CAN avert climate catastrophe, and Provide our youth with hope for a viable future.
