Greens making a difference
Siân is 33 and lives in Kentish Town. Previously the Green Party’s Principal Speaker and national Campaigns Co-ordinator Siân is one of the founders of the successful campaign group the Alliance Against Urban 4x4s.
She has campaigned in her local area of Camden for a greener development in the huge Kings Cross railway lands area, and one which provides high levels of social and affordable housing. She is a well known local activist in Camden, was candidate for Hampstead and Highgate constituency in 2005, and narrowly missed being elected to the council in 2002 and 2006.
Famous for their mock parking tickets for city four-wheel-drives, the Alliance Against Urban 4x4s started in London in 2003 and is now a national campaign demanding sensible measures to stop big 4×4 vehicles taking over our cities. The group recently celebrated persuading the current Mayor of London to propose a higher congestion charge for 4×4 vehicles and other gas-guzzlers.
Siân studied engineering at university and her professional background is in medical communications, where she worked for several years as a copywriter. These skills give her a straightforward and accessible approach to promoting green issues, focusing on what people can do today to make a difference, and on what governments need to do to make greener lives easier and cheaper for everyone.
As spokesperson for the Alliance Against Urban 4x4s, and a well-known Green Party figure, Siân has received wide coverage in national and international newspapers and has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows, from Radio 4’s Today programme to Richard and Judy. Her calm, cheerful and persuasive advocacy has stimulated a lively public debate about 4x4s, and has helped to raise the environment further up the public agenda.
