Her passionate commitment to driving a global conversation on sustainability and climate change, mobilising individuals, businesses and Governments to make bold, fast change has seen her feature on Russell Brands’ Under the Skin podcast, ABC’s Q&A, and invited to deliver an address to the National Press Club in Canberra.
“Sarah Wilson is a force of nature – quite literally. She has taken her pain and grief about our sick and troubled world and alchemized it into action, advocacy, adventure, poetry, and true love. She’s a great teacher and a great leader, and I admire her with all my soul.”
– Elizabeth Gilbert, Author of Eat, Pray, Love
Previously Sarah was editor of Cosmopolitan Australia, host of Masterchef Australia and founder of the largest wellness website in Australia, IQuitSugar.com. In May 2018, Sarah closed the business and gave all proceeds to charity (and continues to do so from book title sales). She now builds and enables charity projects that “engage humans with each other”.
In her most recent book, ‘This One Wild & Precious Life: The Path Back to Connection in a Fractured World’ Sarah takes readers on a soul’s journey through the complexities of climate change, coronavirus, racial inequalities and our disconnection from what matters…back to life. Sarah hikes around the world with one day pack, meeting His Holiness The Dalai Lama, poets, philosophers, two nuns and a goat herder (!) who provide hopeful wisdom and vibrant solutions to arrive at what she feels is the true path through the despair…to our better world.
“Sarah shows us how possible a better world is if we’re willing to roll up our sleeves and get to work building it. By starting with ourselves, heeding the call to inner work and growth, we can build the future we yearn for.”
– David Pocock, former Australian Wallabies Player
