The West Midlands Green Party launched its European election campaign (for 2009) yesterday.
One focus of our campaign will be on using European institutions to help create millions of new green jobs, energy security and a stronger, more resilient economy.
The campaign launch happened at one of the success stories of green job creation in the West Midlands. In Rubery, South Birmingham, Strip Tinning Automotive, after the Rover collapse, diversified into making parts for solar panels.
Our lead candidate for the West Midlands (#1 on the Green Party list) is Felicity Norman.
If you want to hear Felicity speak, one of her next engagements is in Birmingham on the 27th of November. It's a public meeting ("How do we stop climate change?") at Birmingham Uni (Strathcona Building, Lecture Theatre 4) at 730pm.
