About us


WePlanet Australia is an eco humanist organisation seeking to promote public policy that addresses a range of social and environmental issues including climate change, biodiversity loss and poverty.

We are part of the global WePlanet network, founded in Europe in 2022.

Treasurer / Co-Founder

My passion is policy development and ensuring policies have a positive influence on our beautiful world and societies. I was a member of the Greens for several years including running for both federal parliament and local government. There are scientific blindspots in the Green movement in Australia, such as in gene technology and nuclear energy. These weaken our ability to solve environmental and social challenges. That’s why I have led the founding of WePlanet Australia.


Secretary / Co-Founder

I believe in living in an environmentally conscious and ethical life. I strive to make sustainable and environmental personal choices in my daily life but see the need for wider societal change if we are to leave a legacy of a better world for future generations.



I am an optimist who believes there is still time to have a future where humanity and ecology thrive together. I have worked in university, industry and hospital pathology labs as a microbiologist; and more recently in public health. I ran as a candidate in the 2016, 2019 and 2022 federal elections as I couldn't otherwise see the evidence-informed policies I wanted in politics.
