WHO WE ARE
We are a group of Guernsey residents who care about some of the bigger issues facing the island and the planet.
We felt that the really big issues, the complex ones that affect all our futures, sometimes don't get enough attention. We believe that the dangers associated with climate change and biodiversity loss, whilst challenging to solve, have become critical.
Yes the economy is important, as is education, the health service, transport links and aging well, but how much of it matters if the environment on which we depend can no longer function properly.
Our group has included representatives from a variety of backgrounds including environmental charities and organisations. The organisers include Camilla Smillie, Will Carter, Helen Quin, Rosie Dorey, Annie Sandwith, Rollo de Sausmarez, Andrew Munro and Emilie McSwiggan. All of us are involved as volunteers who care about the environment, and are contributing our own time and effort to this work. The group receives no external funding from any source.
Two of our organisers (Rollo and Emilie) have family ties to prospective election candidates. To avoid any conflicts of interest, they will not be handling the results of our survey, or questioning candidates at the hustings. For the avoidance of doubt, none of us are standing for Election ourselves, and none of us are affiliated to any political party.
