I’m running for Co-leader because our issues are more important than ever. I believe through inspiring hope, better organisation and stronger campaigning we can be the change New Zealand needs. I am standing now because I believe I can do the best job to grow our vote, which is the most effective way we can make meaningful action on our core issues: tackling the climate crisis and social inequality.
I am standing for a new generation of Green leadership representing Kiwis like me who grew up with the Internet, burdened with student loans and who are raising a family and struggling to get into their first house.
My candidacy is for a generational shift in our politics. Unlike previous generations a first home, a good job and an affordable education are considered luxuries by many of my generation.
For fifteen years I have dedicated myself to working to protect the environment and climate at organisations like Greenpeace, and winning campaigns. I am now in my third term of Parliament and ready to lead.
