An evening of green food, green drink and green chat with NZ Greens co-leader James Shaw
James Shaw is the new co-leader of the NZ Green Party. If you're interested in the Greens or NZ politics in general, come along to our Q&A evening with James. We'll be asking about his ideas and strategies for the Green Party, the political situation in NZ and his personal motivations for doing this work. You can ask him anything you like!
Prior to becoming an MP, James had a successful career in management consulting, primarily here in London, where he lived from 1998 to 2010. While here, he worked with large, multinational companies across Europe and around the world, developing their sustainable business practices. He also set up the UK branch of the Green Party (that's us!) in 2006.
We are the official London branch of the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand. Like many Kiwis living in the UK, we're proud to call New Zealand home. Aotearoa is never far from our hearts and minds and we want to do our part to make sure it's sweet when we go home.
We thought a healthy smoothie would make a nice change over the festive season so we'll be whipping up delicious & nutritious fruit smoothies but there will also be beers and "hard" smoothies available. Plus some yummy kiwi snacks.
We'll have a drink and snack about 7pm and the Q&A with James will run from 7:30-8:30pm, followed by more chit chat afterwards. The event is right by Oxford Circus so nice and central for most people. Feel free to drop in for some or all of the evening.
