Barbara Pocock

Candidate for Adelaide

Hi, I’m Barbara.

I’m running as your Greens candidate for Adelaide because I’m a passionate advocate for a just and sustainable economy – with secure jobs, fair conditions and flexibility for working carers.

I have spent my life researching the changing nature of work and how it affects men, women and children – and its economic and social costs and benefits.

As a working parent and carer for my own parents, I’ve learned how important it is to have a care system that works well – from childcare through to aged care.

Australians also need a world class education system that’s accessible at all levels. It’s our best investment and the fastest way to reduce inequality.

I will advocate for action on climate change, protection of our environment, and to ensure that global corporations pay their fair share of tax.

I believe it is time for greater diversity in parliament, and for politics that are free of corporate influence.
