Welcome Milly Burgess to Brighton Council

Hello Milly

Hello Brighton community, my name is Milly, and I am the new Sustainability and Climate Project Officer at Brighton Council.

Ever since I was a kid, I have loved nature and the environment, but it wasn’t until I was older that I realised I wanted a career working to protect it.

I have completed a Master of Environment from the University of Melbourne, and prior to that a Bachelor of Psychology. I love using the knowledge and skills I have gained from both degrees to think about solutions to complex problems, like climate change.

During my studies, I had the privilege of working with a not-for-profit organisation, focusing on policy, advocacy, and communications related to climate change and health. More recently, I’ve been involved in assisting communities across Greater Hobart to prepare for and build resilience to bushfires.

Now, stepping into this role at Brighton Council, I’m filled with excitement to lead our climate and sustainability initiatives. I am eager to connect with fellow climate champions in Brighton and to support households, businesses, and the council to collectively amplify our efforts in combating climate change.

I look forward to our shared journey toward a more resilient and sustainable future for Brighton.

Love this
