David works as a sustainability consultant in South London, helping companies, housing associations, and NHS Trusts to reduce their carbon footprint and environmental impacts. Key ambitions include: improving local air quality and conditions for cyclists, increasing Wandsworth's recycling rates and safeguarding green spaces. David has a Master's degree in International Environmental Law, with a specialist focus on nature conservation and rewilding.
After moving to Wandsworth in 2015, I was shocked by the air pollution, air traffic noise and poor recycling methods. I decided to join the Green party and do something about it. I have worked for six London councils bringing derelict buildings back into use for social housing. In recent years, I completed a Master’s degree in renewable energy and have worked on EU sustainability projects. With my professional technical background, understanding of the internal council operations, housing issues, in-depth knowledge of sustainability and belief in the need for a cleaner environment, I hope to make a positive difference for the people of Wandsworth.
Lois has lived in Battersea for over 20 years, and after a career in documentary film editing and lecturing on that subject, she now teaches English to Speakers of Other Languages in the community education sector. She has been active in Battersea through involvement in campaigns like saving Battersea Park Adventure Playground, opposing Formula- E in the park and supporting the implementation of 20mph speed limits across the borough. Her crucial goal is holding our council to account, especially on the provision of genuinely affordable housing and proper consultation with our communities.
Chris has lived in the Dover House area of West Putney since 2011, getting involved in traffic campaigns, the Pleasance play area group, orchard planting and wildlife conservation on the estate. His main campaign issues in West Putney are real action to reduce car traffic on residential streets, enforcing speeding restrictions, consulting residents on parking restrictions, supporting the Roehampton Playing Fields Community Trust, and opposing the Heathrow expansion.
Dan has lived in the Balham ward for over a decade. He is a marketer and organises local live music events for charity in his spare time. Dan would like to challenge Wandsworth council on their recycling policy as the ward has seen a decline of public facilities in recent years and there is a lack of resources available to residents who live in private blocks.
James grew up in South West London and relocated to Battersea after graduating from University.

I'm a resident of the Savona Estate since 2006 with a background in the performing arts, social exclusion, and charity work. I am a very experienced activist on a variety of issues including anti-racism, anti-poverty, equal rights and environmental and humanitarian issues. Known to many people in the area, I'm standing up for the many good people in this community and because there are greener, better alternatives to trickledown economics, austerity and the politics of social division.
I have lived in Thamesfield for 35 years and raised my three children here. I have long been an active member of our dynamic, friendly community, mainly through managing our small communal garden but also volunteering at a local food bank. Realising that my actions to protect our environment were far from enough; I joined the Green Party, and am now putting my beliefs into action. I love this area and want to see change for the better, for everyone.
I have lived in Wandsworth since 1990 and have worked in local schools since 2009, including All Saints and Hotham in Putney. As a qualified child and adolescent mental-health worker based in schools, I believe passionately that people’s well-being is rooted in good connections to families, local communities, local services, and the environment. I aim to work hard to build and protect Putney’s community, culture, diversity, and green open spaces.
I have lived in Earlsfield for the majority of my life, living there with my wife and two children. Working with a local charity for refugees delivering aid I have personally discovered that climate refugees are already a thing. As an illustrator I have worked for Oxford University Press on the bestseller 'England in Particular' and as a long-term contributor to the Financial Times. I reported on the refugee crisis, am a local tree warden and help run the local residents association.
