Sarah Hanson-Young

Senator for SA

Since first elected in 2007, Sarah worked hard to represent her home state of SA and to give a voice to those who are too often forgotten in Canberra. 

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. 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.

She was named a World Economic Forum, Young Global Leader in 2016 and will continue to stand up for the rights of vulnerable people in Australia and around the world.

Her portfolios include: Environment, Water and Murray-Darling Basin, Arts, Nuclear, Communications, and Finance and Trade.
