CHRISTINE MILNE

Christine Milne was appointed the first Global Greens Ambassador by the Global Greens Coordination on 1st July 2015.

As an environment activist, Christine joined the campaign throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s to protect magnificent old growth forests and wild rivers of Tasmania from the rapacious logging industry and the dam builders. As part of the campaign to save the Franklin River in Tasmania and to secure its listing as World Heritage, Christine was arrested and imprisoned.

In 1989, she was elected to the Tasmanian Parliament following a successful campaign to protect the framers and farmlands of Wesley Vale from a highly toxic, native forest based pulp mill. Her election, together with other like minded independents, including Dr Bob Brown, led to the doubling in area of the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area.
