Here at GLD (Green Liberal Democrats) we've been so excited to learn about how many of our MP candidates are real green heroes - already fighting in their professional life, as councillors or members of the community for a cleaner, safer planet.

Pipa HeylingsWe've picked a selection of 30 of our top "green heroes" to give you a sense of what our Lib Dem candidates are made of and what could be possible if we work together to elect more Green Heroes into Parliament. Our first profile is of Pippa Heylings our candidate for South East Cambridgeshire...)

Pippa Heylings

We are sharing the profile of at least one of our Green Heroes every day throughout the election and we hope you will be inspired to help them by sharing their profile with your friends and family and supporting their campaign.

It is important to emphasise that all our Liberal Democrat candidates are heroes! As we head into the most significant General Election in a Generation, we're so proud to be THE party with THE plan which could really deliver a fair and fast transition to Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2045.

Every single Lib Dem MP that you help to elect will be responsible for driving our climate and environment policy priorities through Parliament.

But we hope that you find our list of Green Heroes particularly inspiring. These are Lib Dem candidates who specifically place climate and environmental issues at the front and centre in their campaigns and who we believe will personally push these priorities in parliament. Politics is not just about policies - it`s about people who are willing to put their heart and soul into making the policies happen.

We believe THIS election will be the defining election for tackling the Climate Emergency

We only have one decade left to make massive change to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and get on a path to a zero-carbon economy. Bold action in this next parliament is essential. We hope you will be as inspired as we are by the potential of our Green Heroes and countless other Lib Dem candidates across the country to make change happen.

If so, please visit our candidate campaign sites, find out more how you could support them with your time, money, social media, votes!
