Paul Oosting is the National Director of GetUp, a one million strong member-driven organisation that has campaigned for progressive policy in Australia for over a decade.
Paul has been with GetUp for six years, driving campaigns on renewable energy, consumer power and the Great Barrier Reef.
GetUp ran a successful 2016 election campaign headed by Paul, which targeted the far right blockers holding Australian politics back. The election campaign focused on multiple areas important to GetUp members such as, stopping funding cuts to local hospitals, and keeping climate action at the top of the agenda.
Before joining GetUp, Paul led the successful campaign to stop Gunns’ proposed pulp mill in Tasmania. The campaign resulted in the protection of over 160,000 hectares of Tasmania’s ancient forests.
