Paul Oosting has been the National Director of GetUp since 2015.
He led GetUp’s successful 2016 election campaign, which focused on multiple areas such as stopping funding cuts to local hospitals, holding corporate tax dodgers to account and keeping climate action at the top of the agenda.
In 2017, Paul ranked in the top ten of the Australian Financial Review’s Power Index of the most covertly powerful people in 2017.
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.
