Sarah Hanson-Young

Since first being elected in 2007, Sarah has 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 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.

A global citizen, Sarah is committed to ensuring 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 are causes that are close to her heart.

Sarah 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.

Sarah's portfolios include: Environment and Water, and Arts and Communications.
