About the author

Sarah Hanson-Young is a Senator for South Australia and the Greens' arts spokesperson.

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.
