Matt has journeyed around the country campaigning for climate action and renewable energy. His experience includes several state and federal elections - including campaigning, organising and creating cutting communications for the #StopAdani movement. Based in Brisbane, Matt is driven by the need for a transition to renewable energy. He finds hope in hearing the stories of people benefitting from wind energy; stories of drought-proof income for farmers; of jobs and investment for communities; and of clean energy for a climate-vulnerable country. These are the stories he hopes to amplify.
