Hi, I'm Mat
I am a young environmental campaigner, and a passionate advocate for climate and social justice. As a young person, I understand the impact of housing shortages and the cost of living crisis on our local regional communities.
People are struggling because the cost of everything is going up, and wages have flatlined while corporate profits skyrocket. The Greens will improve the standard of living for Victorians with more affordable housing, cheaper energy, education and transport.
The fragile natural environments in Eastern Victoria are under threat, but the major parties are pouring more fuel on the fire by backing more coal and gas and continuing taxpayer subsidised native forest logging. Our region’s agricultural industries rely on climate action to make sure our communities and businesses remain stable and productive. The Greens will push the next government further and faster on climate action, integrity and accountability.
