Many congratulations to the Green Liberal Democrats on the launch of Greeneralia. It’s excellent to see you expand your work in this way, especially given the importance of the environment and the enthusiasm so many of our members have to get more involved.
The challenges of coronavirus are rightly dominating people’s attention at the moment. But we must not forget the huge challenges that climate change will continue to pose even after an effective coronavirus vaccination programme.
The speed with which new vaccines have been developed, manufactured and rolled out in response to coronavirus should give us optimism for the speed with which the world can take necessary actions on climate change too.
With the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference coming up in the UK, our country and our governments should be at the heart of securing those actions globally. The key is political will, and the work of the Green Liberal Democrats is an important part of what we can contribute to that struggle.
Good luck and I look forward to working with you.
