Raised under South Australia’s fierce sun, Isaac knows first hand the need for urgent action on climate change. Starting out with the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Isaac has been active in the climate movement since age seventeen. Isaac worked as 350.org Australia’s Divestment Campaigner, a campaign working to undermine the social license of coal and gas by calling on institutions to dump their shares in the fossil fuel industry. Over 130 institutions in Australia have divested, including the City of Newcastle - home to the biggest coal port in the world. Now based in Sydney, Isaac works on the #StopAdani campaign, pushing for an end to the Adani coal mine in Queensland. For his work on stopping the expansion of Queensland coal, Isaac has been awarded Bob Brown’s Young Environmentalist of the Year.
