Pushkin Choudhury will be speaking at the GLD 2019 Conference
This conference is a triple first for me; my first time attending the Green Liberal Democrat (GLD) Conference, as the newly appointed GLD Youth Officer and I shall be Chair at one of the GLD's first EVER youth panel.
It is an exciting time for the GLD. Not only is Climate change finally being recognised and taken seriously as a crucial issue, the GLD is consequently experiencing a surge in membership numbers and is being looked upon as the go-to group for consultation on all matters environmental by the Party.
On the Young GLD panels we have a great line-up of future political leaders including; Aimee Challenor, an activist who has fought consistently for equal treatment of the LGBTQ+ community. Leena Sarah Farhat, a PPC and Senedd candidate for Carmarthenshire East and Dinefwr and a hardworking LibDem activist. Jack and James Dart, who are both high profile activists in the tireless fight against Brexit.
Also Joel Baccas who works with 'EU Super Girl', Maddy Kay, writes fascinating articles on the legalities of Brexit & the EU and appears in catchy music videos to promote the Remain cause.
And Sam Harris, 19 year old Extinction Rebellion and School strike activist and an undergraduate student studying International Relations and Politics at Nottingham Trent University and has aspirations to become a Councillor.
Finally, there is me. I am studying for my iGSCEs and am a podcast host, writer & marketing advisor for Politika as well as the newly appointed GLD Youth Officer and creator of a Grassroots Campaign to get Ed Davey elected leader of the LibDems !
I look forward to seeing you all there!
