Mackay Conservation Group (MCG) is a community group at the forefront of the Stop Adani campaign. Accepting the award, the MCG was represented by Peter MacCallum and Christine Carlisle.
Mackay Conservation Group is the peak environmental organisation in the Mackay region in Queensland, Australia and has been operating for 34 years.
In 2015 on behalf of the Mackay Conservation Group, EDO NSW successfully challenged the Federal Government’s approval of the Carmichael coal mine in central Queensland, which would be one of the largest coal mines in the world.
