ADRIAN RAMSAY

PROSPECTIVE PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATE

FOR WAVENEY VALLEY

ADRIAN RAMSAY

Adrian is the Green Party’s candidate for Waveney Valley for the next General Election.

Born and brought up in Norwich, Adrian went on to gain a First Class Degree in Politics and Sociology from the University of East Anglia in 2002, where he received an award for his Politics essays. He later gained a Masters' Degree and has lectured in politics and economics.

Adrian joined the Green Party in 1998 at the age of 16 because he felt the other parties were overlooking environmental issues and were not tackling poverty and animal cruelty. He still feels strongly that the Green Party is the only party with strong and coherent policies on these issues.

As a leading Councillor in Norwich from 2003-2011, Adrian oversaw unprecedented success for the local party seeing it grow rapidly to become the largest Green councillor group in the country at the time.

Adrian was deputy leader of the party from 2008-2012 and played an integral role in the team that saw Caroline Lucas elected as the first Green MP in Brighton Pavilion in 2010.

Adrian has served as the CEO of two national environmental charities, including the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) and has worked as a senior lecturer in environmental politics and economics. He currently leads MCS Charitable Foundation which advocates for renewable energy and green homes.

In 2021, Adrian was elected as Co-Leader of the Green Party with Carla Denyer, who's a city councillor in Bristol.
