Amelia Womack is the Deputy Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales. In the week of International Women’s Day, she’ll be joining us to talk about the intersection between gender equality and environmental justice. She’ll be sharing some of her own experiences as an environmental scientist and activist; considering the feminisation of the term “Mother Earth”; and celebrating the achievements of women in environmentalism.
Amelia is the youngest deputy leader of any UK political party, and was elected aged 29 while still a member of the Young Greens. She is committed to youth engagement, and making young peoples’ voices heard both in politics and within the Green Party. She was the party’s parliamentary candidate in Newport West in 2019, co-chairs the People’s Assembly, and is co-founder of Another Europe is Possible.
The event will be held in University College's Lecture Theatre on 10 Merton Street. The event is fully accessible, but only from inside Univ, so please let us know beforehand if you require it so we can make the arrangements.
