Qualified journalist, freelance writer and digital communications professional, Caroline Gonzalez, founded The Green Herald in 2015 in Melbourne, Australia.
Because no matter what colour your political persuasion – blue, red, green or otherwise – this is all our home and we need to look after it. Therefore, there needs to be a much bigger, broader public conversation about climate change: more than just news stories of rising temperatures, climate science debates, and extreme weather events that can all leave many of us feeling powerless.
Caroline graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Journalism) from RMIT University in 1997. After four years working as a radio journalist, she began a working life as a print journalist at Leader Community Newspapers (News Corp). Five years later she was a regular contributor to domain in The Age, The Sunday Age, and a regular writer for Australian Property Investor Magazine.
Caroline volunteered on the Darebin Environmental Reference Group (2011-2017), an environmental advisory group to the Darebin City Council. She is currently contracting as a writer at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) in Victoria.
Caroline holds a Graduate Certificate in Environment (Climate Change) from the University of Melbourne, and a Bachelor of Arts (Journalism) from RMIT.
