About Chris Gambian:

Chris Gambian has been a trade unionist, community organiser and campaigner for over 20 years. He currently serves as Chief Executive of the Nature Conservation Council of NSW, an organisation that represents over 170 conservation organisations in NSW as an effective and powerful voice for nature.

Chris was the Labor candidate in the Federal seat of Banks in the 2016 and 2019 elections.

Chris is passionate about ensuring that our democracy lives up to its promise that every person can have a strong voice in the halls of power. Whether fighting to protect nature and for action on climate change, or for good jobs, a fair distribution of income and wealth, or just standing up to a bully, Chris says government should be about people.

Most of all Chris believes that we all do better when we back each other in: standing in solidarity with each other, and to lend a hand wherever we possibly can.

A regular on radio & TV and in newspapers, Chris is passionate about taking positive ideas far and wide in the community.

Chris was born and raised in the southern suburbs of Sydney after his parents arrived in the St George district from India in 1975. He is married, and has two young daughters.
