It is with great sadness that we inform you that EGP Committee member Steve Emmott, at the age of 71, passed away on Thursday, 24 September 2015.
Steve Emmott was Member of the European Green Party Committee since October 2009 and was running for reelection at the upcoming Lyon Council in November. He was also member of The Green Party of England and Wales and member of Ecolo and he was a former Advisor of the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament.
The European Green Party loses a committed member, a truly convinced European whose political engagement was led by fighting injustice and nationalism. Steve committed himself to supporting a global Green movement and was preparing himself to take a lead in organizing the joint EGP / Global Greens Congress in spring 2017 in Liverpool, UK.
The EGP Committee members express their heartfelt condolences for this tremendous loss to Steve's partner Nicole, family and friends.
The funeral has taken place Friday, 2 October. The family announcement is published below.
