Luke Barbagallo

Partnerships and Program Manager, Pollinate Energy

Luke’s mission is to be an active participant in a collective journey towards social, economic, and environmental sustainability. His current role at Pollinate Energy allows to realise this and to engage the community on relevant issues.

Pollinate Energy is a social business that seeks to improve the lives of India’s urban poor by giving them access to affordable products. The focus for Pollinate is on sustainability, which means they provide products like solar lighting to reduce fuel use, and improved cooktops to reduce the impact of smoke inhalation in houses.

Luke’s work allows him to foster future leaders, and to connect local change-makers with government and private businesses in order to facilitate meaningful change in communities in Australia and throughout India.

At this year’s Forum, Luke will be participating in the panel discussion on sustainability d global health.
