Notwithstanding my passion for global green politics, I have also been active at the national and local political levels. I was Swedish Green spokesperson when the Swedish Greens entered parliament as the first new party in 70 years, and I have also served as a member of parliament. At the local level, I have been both working as a mayor and been a local councillor for a long time. I believe this is also an important
experience for the Global Green Coordination since in many countries; Greens are at the strongest and can make the greatest impact at the local level.
To me, the most important political issue is fighting nuclear power and nuclear weapons and instead introducing decentralized energy systems, and I have been actively involved in the Swedish anti-nuclear movement. I have always been committed to human rights and environmental justice worldwide, protesting against French nuclear weapon tests at Moruroa and helping to stop the forced relocation of Diné (Navajo) Indians in Arizona.
I look forward to continue working actively for the Global Greens in the Coordination!
