Our new EU chair: Keith Taylor MEP
We're delighted to announce that Keith Taylor MEP has joined the Climate Parliament as the Chair of our group of MEPs in the European Parliament. A member of the UK Green Party, representing South-East England, Keith is a seasoned campaigner for climate action and environmental justice, and we're delighted that he has agreed to lead our campaigns in Brussels.
Keith was a Principal Speaker for the Green Party of England & Wales between 2004 and 2006, where he led the development of the party’s manifesto. As the Green Party’s next candidate on its 2009 European list for the South East region, Keith took the place of Caroline Lucas (another Climate Parliament trustee) in the European Parliament, following her election to the House of Commons as the UK’s first Green MP in 2010. Keith was successfully re-elected in May 2014 to serve another five years as Green MEP for South East England.
Keith replaces Sir Graham Watson, who will stay with the Climate Parliament as our Honourary President.
