Nicky Coombes

Currently I am working with Groundswell Gloucester in opposition to AGL’s Gloucester Gas Project, GRL’s Rocky Hill Coal Mine and occasionally Yancoal’s Stratford & Duralie Coal Mines. I focus on mediating between groups & translating technical terms, encouraging those who are new to the movement & supporting my peers. I am interested in campaign strategy and what it takes to motivate individual people into further action. I see community organising as community healing. Only when a level of harmony is reached within a community, can they begin to really move forward & be productive.

As a mother of four young children, I am keenly aware of the impact we are making on their future and the best way to lead is through example. I have participated in, worked with and helped organise with Groundswell Gloucester, Gloucester Knitting Nanas Against Gas, Gasfield Free Communities, Join Take Action Gloucester and Sustainable Futures.
