Brett is a research assistant for SEI’s The floor of Sydney Harbour research project.
Brett completed a Bachelor of Arts (Honours Class I) in 2017 from the University of Sydney, where he majored in Gender & Cultural Studies (Hons) and Philosophy. His thesis titled ‘Think Global, Reconfigure the Local: How Intermediaries Articulate Pro-Environmental Values and Practices’ explored the concept of the ‘pro-environmental intermediary’ within contemporary environmental discourse. Brett coined this concept in order to make sense of the role of agency within structural environmental problems, and examined the efficacy of this framework through two different case studies: Greenpeace’s ‘Save the Reef’ campaign, and the Inner-West Council’s ‘Home Eco Challenge.’
Brett is passionate about environmental pedagogy, environmental activism, climate justice, sustainable materialisms, and animal ethics.
