Belinda Bean, Sustainability Officer
My undergraduate and Masters education (both undertaken at Macquarie University) engaged my interest in community-based social marketing campaigns directed towards sustainability.
Outside my life at Macquarie, I am a national ambassador for 1 Million Women - a campaign that empowers women to take action on climate change. We aim to get one million Australian women on board, so please spread the word to the ladies in your lives! On weekends you'll find me doing bushcare or bushwalking in some of the gorgeous national parks we have around Sydney, or scuba diving if it's not too cold!
My favourite quote comes from the Stockholm Declaration:
"Man has the fundamental right to freedom, equality, and adequate conditions of life, environment of quality that permits a life of dignity and well-being, and he bears a solemn responsibility to protect and improve the environment for present and future generations"
- though I do wish they'd said 'Humans have' rather than 'Man has'!
