Staff - Campaign Manager
While being first and foremost the father of a wonderful little 1yo girl, Ben (he/him) works with Australian Parents for Climate action as our Campaigns Manager. After forging a successful career as an engineer who specialised in sustainable building design, Ben is better known to us as the founding CEO of Veterinarians for Climate Action, which under his stewardship grew to a wonderfully passionate organisation with three staff and several thousand supporters. He also worked a short stint at the Australian Marine Conservation Society before a move to Melbourne led him into our welcoming arms!
Ben is a strong believer in the power of Community Organising as a method of empowering everyday Australian parents to work together to achieve real and sustained system change, and he truly believes that this organisation will continue to be pivotal in seeing our country become a climate leader.
Ben is a passionate about learning and developing new skills, and he'd like to thank Australian Conservation Foundation, Progress Australia, Climate Reality, Common Cause, OrganiseUs and Changemakers, amongst others, for providing the training opportunities which have made his work with us possible.
