I have been part of communities and organising action for shared visions since I lived in my first intentional community in Scotland in 1996. I was the coordinator for Resource Work Co-operative where we inspired the community and ran campaigns to reduce waste in the Hobart area. I have also been part of ‘Be The Change’ and a facilitator of the Work that Reconnects and Awakening the dreamer, changing the dream program. In my current role, I work with specific groups to bring about change in our community including Climate Action Darwin and NT Waste Free (Plastic Free Markets).
As the Director of the Environment Centre NT I am responsible for all campaign planning and campaigning activities to best achieve our strategic plan goals. Our goals include the protection and restoration of the environment, strong action on climate change and support for sustainable living. My role is also to develop alliances with diverse stakeholders to deliver campaigns and projects, generate revenue, and expand our influence through our campaigns. Areas we are currently campaigning include advocating for an aspirational and effective greenhouse gas emissions target, strong actions for meeting our NT renewables target, anti-fracking campaign, calling for the closure of McArthur River Mine, strong protection and policies for the Darwin Harbour, advocating and educating for a plastic free Darwin markets and stopping deforestation of the native vegetation in the Northern Territory.
