Working with my team at 350.org Melbourne we organised community members in the city of Moreland to engage with their local council, in our campaign to have them divest from fossil fuels.
I am currently acting as the Melbourne coordinator of 350.org. This voluntary role involves organising our small but active team of local volunteers to run campaigns and support the work of 350.org nationally. My role includes campaigning, strategy, communications, organising and helping to empower others to do the same! This year we have focused on fossil fuel divestment in local governments and the campaign to encourage the Big 4 banks to rule out lending to the proposed coal projects in the Galilee Basin.
I have also spent a bunch of 2015 working on non-violent direct action facilitation and training. Recently, I began working at The Wilderness Society as the operations coordinator for the Wilderness Defenders team.
