Membership & Campaign Coordinator
ACT Coordinator - Geoff Buckmaster
Geoff is a long-standing advocate for population stabilisation and in recent years has served on the ACT and National committees of Sustainable Population Australia. As a corporate strategy specialist in the energy industry, Geoff is accutely aware of the futility in tackling climate change while successive governments continue to boost our numbers at third-world rates.
NSW Coordinator - William Bourke
See separate profile outline under 'Founder and President' page.
Queensland Coordinator - Aaron Webber
Aaron has recently returned to Queensland after six years living and working in the UK. During his time overseas, he experienced the impacts of overpopulation and became alarmed when hearing of Kevin Rudd's push for a 'Big Australia'. Coming back to a very noticeable population explosion in South East Queensland, he decided to become active and was encouraged by the balanced, fair and forward thinking approach of the Stable Population Party. Having worked for Barclays Bank in London, Aaron also has a keen interest in our economic and debt-based money systems.
SA Coordinator - Gregory Oates:
Greg is a process engineer in the energy industry and has worked on operations in remote Australia and in design involving energy efficiency. Greg has a track record of high achievement, including dux of his school, and graduating from Adelaide University with a Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical) (First-class Honours). Greg's interest in the party arose from the reality that sustainability can not be engineered when lumped with a bulging population, the observation of what makes a good (and bad) place to live whilst on his travels and from listening to the concerns of others.
Tasmanian Coordinator - Susan Bowes
Susan is based in Hobart and works in the public education and training sector. She firmly believes politicians and media need to accept there is a problem and put population stabilisation at the top of their agenda. She is convinced the Stable Population Party has the vision, progressive policies and practical solutions to help implement a better future.
Victorian Coordinator - Jonathan Page
Jonathan has a professional background in science and a strong connection with the Australian environment, having spent much of his formative years bushwalking. He treasures the beauty of many other species on this planet and is pained when hearing about the next Australian species under threat due to land clearing or other human activity. Jonathan is also particularly concerned about the housing affordability crisis, which of course, is exacerbated by rapidly growing demand for a finite resource (habitable land in well serviced areas).
WA Coordinator - John Banks
John Banks is an Arboriculturist (Urban Forester), Horticulturist and Teacher, resident in Denmark, WA. He has studied, worked and travelled throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and every part of WA. For 23 years he operated an Arboricultural Consultancy practice in Perth. His travels alerted him to the serious environmental and human problems Australia could experience if it overpopulated. He believes his concerns are being realised as Australia's soaring population growth has become the primary cause of the accelerating destruction of the natural environment, escalating cost of infrastructure, rapidly diminishing water resources and overall decline in quality of life. He proudly helped form the Stable Population Party to give Australians a choice on this most important of issues.
