Nic Seton

Staff - CEO

After 15 years of campaign management and senior leadership roles for global and national non-government organisations in Australia and the UK, Nic took a year out to care for his second child. He then joined Parents for Climate as its CEO in 2021, determined to facilitate effective public pressure for climate action. Nic brings his experience in delivering award winning public campaigns, rapid strategy development and organisational leadership to support the team at Parents for Climate to achieve rapid growth and strategic impact.


Nic lives in Sydney with his two incredible kids and an inspiring partner. They have a lot of fun exploring nature and playing together.

"I’m really excited to be taking up the position of CEO of Parents for Climate. What we do now will decide the scale of the challenge our kids face. We can act now for a safe climate for all families. That’s why I’m passionate about this role. I get to work with a skilled and talented movement of people who are driven by their love for the kids in their lives."

"Our parenting years are busy. We work hard at home and in our jobs. But these years are also the most beautiful moments of our lives. Every action we take as parents creates happier, healthier lives for our children too. So thank you for taking action, working hard and for everything you do to make the climate safer for all. I look forward to working alongside you on our journey to securing a safe climate."

Parents for Climate meet and work on the lands of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and respect that sovereignty of those lands was never ceded. We pay respect to Elders, past and present and emerging, and acknowledge the pivotal role that Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Australian community.
