Andrew Bartlett was the Queensland Greens Convenor until his election to the Senate on 10 November 2017. He was sworn in on 13 November 2017.

Andrew has over 10 years past experience representing Queensland in the Senate from 1997-2008.

Andrew is committed to breaking down the existing political power structures which operates for the benefit of a minority of wealthy and entrenched vested interests by exploiting the wider community and our environment. He believes in supporting and empowering the people and movements in our community that are working for a fair sustainable economy, effective action on global warming, and treating people and animals with decency.

Prior to entering the Senate, Andrew worked as a social worker, in community radio, as a policy advisor, and with a number of not-for-profit organisations. Andrew has worked as a researcher and academic on migration issues, and also as an advocacy worker. He also worked as public high school teacher after returning to University to obtain a teaching qualification.  Andrew continues to volunteer for community radio and with local advocacy groups. He has a keen interest in music, and is a passionate supporter of promoting diversity, empowering people and opposing racism and discrimination. He was the Greens’ candidate for the federal seat of Brisbane in 2010 and for Lord Mayor of Brisbane in 2012, as well as being second on the party's Senate ticket at the 2016 federal election.

Whilst in the Senate, Andrew ensures the community has more of a say in politics and in the decisions that affect them. He is a strong and consistent advocate across a wide range of issues including:

  •     The rights of asylum seekers, refugees and migrants
  •     Housing affordability
  •     Cheaper power bills
  •     Stopping Adani
  •     Cheaper, better public transport
  •     Stopping land clearing
  •     Planning for people, not profit
  •     Getting big money out of politics
  •     Adequate social services and income support
  •     Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander issues
  •     Equality regardless of sexual or gender identity
  •     Animal welfare
  •     And more...
