Elyse Cunningham

I grew up in the Blue Mountains, NSW on Dharug and Gundungurra Country, and moved down to Naarm in late 2018 where I am currently living and working on Wurundjeri Country. My values are based in social justice and solidarity, for people, planet and animals. 

I began organising in January this year, and have just started as the Sustainable Cities Community Organiser at Friends of the Earth Melbourne. I'll be working on their better buses campaign to get a faster, better connected bus network in Melbourne's Western suburbs, powered by clean electric vehicles.

I'm passionate about climate activism that is rooted in intersectional social justice, and am looking forward to strengthening my organising skills and meeting folks who are doing amazing work during the fellowship.
