Impact Narrative

Sandy’s OVER proposal:

“I am part of the group trying to push the population issue inside the Green Party. I would circulate material from the book to fellow activists as well as try to get extracts included in the party’s magazine Green World and activists’ newsletter. I am on the (national) Regional Council of the Green Party and stand as local council candidate. I am also campaign manager for our parliamentary constituency and also act as policy advisor in the NE England Region of the Green Party. I am a member of Population Matters and have had articles published in journals and newspapers such as The Ecologist and The Guardian. I’ve been interviewed on BBC NE TV a number of times and on local radio. I have given talks on population at several events, including the local university.
I am not formally representing the Green Party but I do represent an ecological current within it. I have been prominent in battles to get coverage of Population Matters in Green Party literature as well as allow it to have stalls at GP events.”
