Trent McCarthy

Trent McCarthy was first elected to Darebin Council in 2008 on a climate action platform.

Since then, Trent has led the development of Darebin’s climate policy, including proposing the world’s first government-level climate emergency declaration on 5 December 2016. Trent is the founder of Climate Emergency Australia, a network of councils and other groups calling for urgent action by all levels of government. Trent is also the co-founder of Darebin’s Solar Saver program, which is installing solar on 4,000 buildings in four years and has a focus on low-income households. Trent is the proud parent of two primary school student strikers.


Trent’s

Perspective

“Communities are increasingly calling on their local leaders to act on climate change, with many councils at the precipice of the issue. This sort of synergy between state and local and federal action can deliver a lot of outcomes for communities”
