Testimonials for Tanya Ha

At Rockdale City Council’s first ever Environmental and Sustainability Forum I was wowed by Tanya Ha’s presentation. I was familiar with some of her work, having read her book Greeniology which I agree is the greenies’ bible. Greeniology is well written, jam-packed full of practical facts and had led me to expect Tanya to be a greenie on the bookish side. I wasn’t expecting to be charmed, inspired, empowered and entertained as I was by her presentation.

Tanya Ha's Biography

Tanya Ha is a writer, television presenter, environmentalist and internationally recognised sustainable living advocate. She is best known as the Eco Coach in the landmark SBS reality TV series Eco House Challenge, the author of the acclaimed eco-guide book Greeniology, science reporter on the ABC science series Catalyst and a media commentator on environmental issues.

In the SBS TV series Eco House Challenge, Tanya was the Eco Coach - the green living expert who helps guide two decidedly non-green Australian families along the path from planet-polluting to eco-friendly in a few short weeks.

Tanya is a "people's environmentalist". She is a passionate advocate for the ways that ordinary people can help save the planet, earning her the nickname 'Eco-Nigella'.

Warm, engaging and more hip than hippie, Tanya is a rare breed of environmentalist - one with a sense of humour. She makes complex environmental issues easy to understand and offers practical, accessible advice that people can incorporate into their lifestyle. Her approach is fun and positive, believing that people respond better when they're made to feel empowered rather than guilty.

Tanya spent many years working for Planet Ark, a non-political, non-confrontational, unashamedly populist environment group that defines itself by what it's for, not what it's against. She also serves on the Board of the state government authority Sustainability Victoria.

Tanya has authored many books including - Greeniology 2020 – Greener living today and with a focus on the future, Green Stuff for Kids – a fun guide to what’s up with the planet for younger readers, The Australian Green Consumer Guide – the ultimate guide to buying green and Greeniology – first and second edition, overseas versions and related titles.

Tanya is now concentrating on writing, consulting and developing environmental media projects. Tanya also writes freelance feature articles. She has written stories for newspapers and magazines, including Sunday magazine, Australian House & Garden, Fresh, Cosmopolitan and Yen. She also has a regular column in G magazine - the eco-lifestyle magazine from Luna Media, the publishers of Cosmos.

Tanya is an articulate, informative, entertaining and inspirational speaker. Whether presenting keynote speeches to large audiences or small sustainability, she involves her audience and empowers them to act on what they hear. Her speeches are thought provoking but fun, inspiring and motivating listeners to environmental action in their own lives. Tanya's speech and workshop experience includes corporate events, youth conferences, local government education initiatives, environmental expos and other special events and launches. Tanya Ha is also a sought after Master of Ceremonies and Host at many difference events.
