Meet Vicky Fysh - Tasmanian & Victorian Organiser

Answer

Screen_Shot_2017-09-20_at_7.41.04_pm.pngI got involved in activism in my early 20’s, after spending a few years feeling scared, frustrated and angry at our government’s approach to climate change.

Volunteering allowed me to take action on issues I care deeply about, but I also found something I didn’t realise I was looking for: community. Whether it’s acting alongside students in my uni’s Environment Collective or teaming up with GetUp members on the phones, the connections I make through this work keep me motivated.

I started at GetUp three months ago after a three-year stint with climate organisation 350.org Australia. I’ve been blown away by the dedication, experience and passion that GetUp members bring, and the tremendous impact that comes from getting on the phones to strangers to connect on shared values.

I’m somewhat daunted, but hugely excited, about the possibilities of the GetUp Action Network — and I’m looking forward to working with you over the coming months and years!
