Sarah believes that our economy must deliver for both people and planet. Our generation is the first to see the impacts of climate change – and we are the last who can stop it. There is no time to lose in reducing carbon pollution and moving to a zero-emission economy. This means investing in renewable energy, green-powered industry, phasing out fossil fuels and banning new coal mines – like Adani. Climate change looms as the biggest driver of inequality of the next generation. Sarah is a strong advocate for making sure no-one is left behind as we transition to a cleaner and safer world. Sarah is a global citizen, committed to ensuring that Australia remains connected to the rest of the world, through ideas and global action. Decency to refugees and promoting a Welcoming Australia to new migrants is a cause close to her heart. As a proud student of public schooling, Sarah believes that a quality education should be free and accessible to every child and student, from early childhood through to University. Sarah will continue the fight to make our country a fairer and more compassionate place. She has backed diverse initiatives to encourage equality of opportunity for women and is a leading advocate for paid parental leave and universal access to childcare to help boost women’s workforce and community participation.
