Product description

About the Author

Christine Milne was leader of the Australian Greens from 2012 to 2015. After growing up on a dairy farm at Wesley Vale, she attended boarding school in Hobart and obtained a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in History from the University of Tasmania. From 1975 to 1984 she worked as a secondary school teacher, teaching English, History and Social Science. She first came to public attention for her role in opposing the building of the Wesley Vale pulp mill near Bass Strait in North Western Tasmania on the basis of its environmental impact. She was arrested and jailed in 1983 while protesting the Franklin Dam. In 1993 she became the first woman to lead a political party in Tasmania, and led the Tasmanian Greens for five years through a period of significant reform in the areas of gun control, same-sex relationships and economic reform and at time of considerable turmoil in the forests. She was one of Australia's Bicentennial Women 88 Award winners, was appointed to the United Nations Global Roll 500 of Honour in 1990 for her conservation work, and was elected to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Global Council in 2000. After finishing her decade-long senate career in 2015, she was appointed as an ambassador for the Global Greens. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

'A woman, a mother, a fighter. A heart-warming inspiration for all who want to make a real difference in this world.' Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

'Christine is a force to be reckoned with, a woman to laugh with and a great mentor. Her deep love for nature, concern for the climate and care for people is best expressed in her tenacity, hard work for decades, and little things like pots of homemade apricot jam. Read this book if you want to be inspired to back yourself and work for a better world.' Larissa Waters, former Greens Deputy Leader

'Christine Milne is a powerful champion for the planet and a world-renowned pioneer in Green politics. She has shown the way for many of us, and continues to inspire Greens around the world. Her story is compelling.' Caroline Lucas MP, Co-Leader, Green Party of England and Wales

'Christine Milne has always been much more than an activist. She has long been a powerful inspiration to me and countless thousands of other Australians because of her relentless fight against greed, environmental destruction, war, discrimination and political corruption. Christine Milne will never lose her humanity. She is incorruptible.' Peter Cundall, author and previous presenter of Gardening Australia

'Christine Milne is one of the world's most important environmental voices; to have the story of where she came from and how she has fought her many battles is a great gift, one which will inspire all of us to fight harder and smarter.' Bill McKibben, founder 350.org
