Carla is a Green Party councillor in Bristol. In 2018 she proposed the first Climate Emergency motion in Europe, committing Bristol to go carbon neutral by 2030. This started a wave of similar motions across the country, with over 200 local authorities, plus the UK Parliament and Scottish and Welsh governments, having now declared a Climate Emergency. Before entering politics, Carla worked as an engineer in the renewable energy industry, specialising in offshore and onshore wind technology.

She was also a candidate in the 2019 European Elections for the South West. To find out more about Carla’s work as a councillor, click here.

NO TO CLIMATE CHAOS

We need urgent action to avoid catastrophic climate change.

AN END TO AUSTERITY

Schools, hospitals, public transport and local services need to be properly funded.
