Illawarra Greens. Social justice, environmental sustainability, peace and non-violence and grassroots democracy.

Meet the candidates for Heathcote Cooper Riach (Greens)

Climate activist Cooper Riach is representing the Greens and will be looking to replicate strong numbers seen for the party in the area at recent federal and local elections

Why are you running?

I am running to give my generation hope for the future, and to give a voice to the environmental and community issues which have been ignored by this government.

How long have you lived in the electorate/area?

I’ve lived in the electorate, in the small town of Bundeena, since 2014.

What is your final pitch to voters?

We already have the knowledge and the technology to solve the climate crisis.

We already have the wisdom and the wealth to solve the cost-of-living crisis.

All that is missing is the courage and the will to act.
