In November this year, Victorians will head to the polls to vote in our next state government.
We’re building up a huge people-powered campaign right across the state to show political candidates that Victorians want urgent action to protect our climate, environment and communities – and that we need strong leadership from our government to make it happen.
Describing herself as an ‘Armchair Activist’ for many years, while busy working or raising a family, Suzy started becoming more hands-on with Environment Victoria for the 2018 State Election and joined her local group. With her children becoming more independent, Suzy has become a voluntary Community Organiser in the Action Network, on Bunurong / Boon Wurrung Country.
Bruce lives in Mordialloc on Boon Wurrung Country with his wife and three daughters. He has worked in Horticulture and Agriculture since graduating in Ag Science in the 1980s, and has been a volunteer with Environment Victoria for the past ten years. His insight for the day: never turn your back on the sea, or a politician!
Faizul lives on Bunurong Country and works as a Chartered Accountant in Dandenong. He’s deeply involved in the community, helping to run cultural events, reduce gambling harm in the community, and lead people to take action for our environment. Growing up in Bangladesh helps him to connect the impacts of climate change there with the climate pollution we produce here.
Right now, our climate and environment is in crisis. We’re already experiencing the impacts of a damaged climate, but we also have an opportunity to limit the damage create a better, cleaner future. We know that people power is key to inspiring the action we need and holding our leaders to account. So we’re building a network of Victorians like you to bring together local communities across the state and take action.
By joining the Melbourne South East Action Network, you’ll be connected to a community of passionate people working to cut dangerous climate pollution, transition to clean energy and protect our beautiful natural places.
