Tim Lo Surdo

I am currently Head of Campaigns, Oaktree (youth-led, anti-poverty organisation). Previously worked for Jhatkaa (Indian equivalent of GetUp!) and did organising for two federal parliamentarians. Oaktree is young people leading a movement to end poverty. For us, change starts with two simple beliefs – that extreme poverty is unacceptable, and young people can do something about it. Beliefs turn into action, and enough informed action will end extreme poverty in our lifetime. Oaktree is one of Australia’s largest youth-run organisations with over 150,000 members. I lead Oaktree’s social and political advocacy work. We’re currently campaigning around climate change impacts on developing countries.
