Celia Kerslake is a retired academic (Turkish studies), who has lived in West Oxfordshire since 1988 and Charlbury since 2003.
She has been an active member of the West Oxfordshire Green Party since 2010. She joined the Green Party because it is the only UK party with an all-encompassing political philosophy that takes a truly global view of human society.
She is inspired not only by the Green Party’s environmental concerns, but also by its values of individual freedom and social justice. These apply at all levels of government and organisation from social care in the local community to the conditions of international trade.
