About Me

Hi, I’m Bryce Ham, a 20-year-old climate activist and urban planning enthusiast from Newcastle, Australia.

I have been involved in activism since 2018, primarily through Newcastle School Strike 4 Climate and the Hunter Valley Statehood Movement. Throughout that time I’ve organised a number of climate protests and put the Hunter Valley Statehood Movement on the map in my role as media spokesperson.

I was an Independent candidate in the 2021 Lake Macquarie council elections in the North Ward, you can learn more about my campaign on its website bryce4lakemac.com. My three priorities were to put an end to suburban sprawl, to prioritise public and active transport, and to establish a ferry network on our lake. I’m passionate about transport and urban planning and think our city would benefit from a having a future-facing young person on its Council.

During the 2021 Hunter COVID outbreak, I created a website to track the huge amounts of data relevant to the pandemic. I was inspired to do this due to the lack of information relevant to the Hunter Valley available as a result of us not being a state. The Hunter was lumped in with Sydney almost all of the time which wasn’t very useful for people in our region. You can visit the website at covid.bryce.eco.

This blog is where I will share my musings about climate activism, Hunter Valley statehood, and urban planning. Here’s a few posts you can check out to get started!
