Vicky Fysh

I was raised in the Dandenong Ranges on the outskirts of Melbourne. I am a mad dog lover, traveller and dodge-baller. I have been working on climate change for around 5 years. Since starting, I haven’t looked back! Connecting with other people on an issue we care deeply about and pushing for change never stops being incredibly fulfilling, frustrating at times, emotional and rewarding work! I started out volunteering with Beyond Zero Emissions, eventually becoming the Melbourne branch convenor and working there for a stint.

In 2013, I was the University of Melbourne Student Union Environment Officer, where we started the Fossil Free MU campaign calling on the University to stop investing in fossil fuels. Since then, I have worked for Pacific and spent 3 years working for Australia as a campus divestment coordinator. In early 2017 I started working for GetUp as the Victorian Community Organiser, with a focus on setting up a big network of local GetUp Action Groups in Victoria and around the country.
