Amelia Womack: Campaigns, Communication, Activism

Since 2014, I’ve been the Deputy Leader of the Green Party, playing a crucial role in bringing the party into the mainstream.  During my time in the leadership, the party has grown from 16,000 members to over 50,000, and recently hit a milestone of over 500 local councillors across England and Wales.  

First elected as Deputy Leader of the Green Party at the age of 29, I’m the youngest person in a party leadership position in the UK. Within my role, I’ve led campaigns on Europe, making misogyny a hate crime, and a Green New Deal – among many others. Now, I take speaking engagements and media appearances across the country. 

Born and raised in Newport, South Wales, I got a BSc in Environmental Biology from Liverpool University and an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London.

Now, I travel England and Wales supporting grassroots campaigns, and am a regular on national TV, radio and in newspapers – including the BBC, Sky, and Channel 4. In the 2019 general election, I wrote a weekly column in The Independent.

In the run-up to the EU Referendum in 2016, I co-founded Another Europe is Possible, the left-wing EU Referendum remain campaign – bringing together a wide coalition of grassroots groups and voices from across the left to put forward a radical, alternative vision for remaining in the EU.
