Forest of Dean Green Party Parliamentary Spokesperson

James Greenwood, longstanding Green activist and former Chair of the Forest of Dean Green Party, is now the Parliamentary Spokesperson for the Forest of Dean Green Party.

Says James:

20 years ago I came with my young family and first child to settle in the Forest to raise a family, run a property business and work a smallholding in Lydney. I absolutely love the Forest, and would relish the opportunity to make the Forest an even better place to live and work.

I studied Business and Economics at Edinburgh University, before working, researching and raising money for charities in South America, Asia and the Middle East.  I have been a local Councillor over the last 8 years, and, as a Steering Group member, I am actively engaged in the campaigns to prevent the sell-off of the Forest, and the proposed new nuclear power station at Oldbury.

The local Green Party is bursting with common sense and visionary ideas to protect the Forest and provide opportunities for Foresters; practical policies on Health and Livelihoods, as well as the Environment, Transport, and Education.
