Ben oversees all campaign and communications outputs for Greenpeace Australia Pacific. He began his career at this same place over two decades ago as a Frontline Fundraiser shortly after graduating with honours from the University of Sydney.
Throughout his career, Ben has focused primarily on campaigns to mitigate climate change and reduce the use of nuclear power. From 2001 to 2004, he and his family lived in Indonesia where he established and ran CDM Watch - a watchdog for the Kyoto Protocol's Clean Development Mechanism. He also worked for four years with the NSW Government Department of Environment and Climate Change where he developed renewable energy policy. He also worked with Greenpeace during this time in Sydney and Amsterdam.
Ben enjoys the opportunity to get involved frontline activism work to protect our climate, oceans and forests, and to ensure his kids grow up in a healthy planet.
