Congratulations to the 11,000 new members of Britain’s greenest party

The post-election membership surge is an opportunity to renew and refocus our party. We can show off its core values, which have been seen recently only through the distorting glass of coalition policy. The Tories have held us back in the environmental arena more than others, so I want to make my pitch for all members, new and existing, to also consider joining the Green Liberal Democrats

The Green Liberal Democrats is the Associated Organisation I have been privileged to chair for the past couple of years.We exist to:

Ensure that the Liberal Democrats’ proud record of environmental leadership at all levels of government continues
Establish and develop links with the wider green movement
Inform and educate party activists, policymakers, candidates and elected representatives on environmental issues
Support individuals within the party who are advancing the agenda of environmental stewardship and generational justice

We’ve been around a while, as the Liberal Ecology Group founded in 1977 by the late Tony Beamish (pdf) and then the Green Liberal Democrats via a couple of more unweildy titles during the SDP merger.
