    Improving biodiversity by challenging the impoverishment of our declining natural economy.

    May 6th Elections 2021

    We are all very busy, I am sure, in most areas of the country with election campaigns of one kind or another, leading up to a very busy day on 6th May 2021. We cannot change the world as much as we`d like without getting a hand (or even, perhaps, a finger!) on the levers of power. This means we are trying to get elected, or trying to get someone we trust, with views similar to our own, elected to councils, or parliaments, or mayoralties to `get something done`.

    Article: Mar 31, 2021

    The Green Liberal Democrats are experimenting with this new bi-monthly publication aimed at all those anxious to avoid the existential crisis feared by the Doomsday Clock Bulletin, but with no specialist knowledge of how to do so.

    Part forum, part articles written by you, our readers, and part written by or about specialists in their field, this is the brainchild of the Green LibDems, but is not primarily written by or for them. Greeneralia aspires to cross the political spectrum in the hope of building consensus.

    Chair, Lucy Nethsingha: I'm the leader of the Liberal Democrats on Cambridgeshire County Council and have been involved in campaigning every year for about 20 years, I think. So I've done an awful lot of campaigning on Green issues and on other issues, but I'm looking forward to learning a lot today. Pippa, over to you.

    Hi - it seems probable that if you have just arrived on the GLD website today, it is because you clicked on the website link on the conference GLD Booth!?

    So, I hope you will take the opportunity to visit the booth when it is staffed later, or tomorrow. It will be great to speak with you.

    By Wera Hobhouse MP in GLD Challenge magazine 2020-21

    It's a great pleasure to be back in the role of Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for the Climate Emergency and in the position of supporting all of the wonderful work done by the Green Liberal Democrats.

    With so many international climate events this year, from the Convention on Biological Diversity to COP26 being held in the UK, we will all certainly have our plates full.
    These events provide us with the rare opportunity to influence international climate and ecological policy and we cannot let it pass us by.

    Global Summit on the Climate Crisis
    COP26 - Glasgow 2021
    Pivoting to a new World Order?

    I want to put this challenge out there.
    I want to know if anybody`s listening.
    It is not a new challenge, but it may just be timely to seek an answer. 2021 will be a pivotal year.

    The world has made great progress in producing a number of new, effective vaccines to tackle Covid 19. Unless we are struck with a new, more dangerous variant of this tiny unseen enemy, there is some hope that the UK may be one of the first countries to emerge from lockdown.

    York: Getting real about carbon zero

    And so they built a cluster of passive homes in the heart of York to demonstrate how transforming construction would deliver the carbon zero future. When the last roof tiles were in place and the last licks of paint brushed across the low carbon plasterboard, the houses went on sale and weeks later the happy Harrison family moved in. A couple of years later those who had created the homes returned to measure the Harrison's carbon footprint to show the world how the new homes had contributed to a safer, greener, zero carbon future and …
