Delegates

Michael Coleman has a keen commitment to social justice which is evidenced by his work in the youth services sector in Sydney over the last decade. He has been employed as a life skills educator, case worker, and community development worker and is currently coordinating the EMPATHY Program – a program designed to increase social inclusion for young people that are at risk of homelessness.

Michael was also proud to be apart of our delegation on Freedom Flotilla Two – Stay Human, you may have seen him paddling around Crete in a Kayak.

Michael has also done voluntary work in Nablus in the West Bank of Palestine for Project Hope, teaching English and music production. In addition to this, Michael is currently working towards establishing a non-profit incorporated association called ‘Music for the Dark Corners’ to support strategies to challenge the occupation and show solidarity with the Palestinian people.
