Simon Sheik on Activism in the 21st Century – getting community action on issues that matter.

Simon grew up in a public housing estate, and was primary carer for his mother who suffered from a mental illness. He studied Economics at university, and then worked in the NSW Treasury.  He is very well known from his work with the online advocacy group GetUp. He is particularly interested in issues such as social justice and the wellbeing of communities.

Simon is the Green Party’s candidate for the ACT senate seat at this year’s federal election.

He will have much to tell us about activism and how to get a message across to the public.
