It is our individual and collective responsibility to ensure that every being on this planet lives a full, happy, and healthy life

What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?

Self-belief

Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?

I have always been passionate about sustainability. There was no light bulb moment for me, just a gradual realisation that there is nothing else in the world more worthy of devoting your life to. It stems from a deep sense that we are all intimately connected. It is our individual and collective responsibility to ensure that every being on this planet lives a full, happy, and healthy life, free of suffering, now and forever more.

Why is leadership for sustainability is important?

Humanity has never faced a bigger crisis – every human must use their unique set of strengths, abilities and vision to steer us safely to a thriving society and planet.

What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?

I will continue to work with government and non-government organisations to ensure the best environmental programs are supported and improved on. My long term goal is to start my own consultancy and work from a rural property in Northern NSW that will be 100% self sufficient. I plan to record a new album in the new year, including a few songs that were inspired by my CSL experience. Several of the songs have sustainability themes and I plan to continue use my music as a vehicle for promoting positive social change. I have a dream of doing an Australian tour by bicycle at the end of next year :)
