Danielle is currently in the middle of her law and public policy degree at the University of Waikato. Although this does make her sound like a boring person, she promises she isn’t.
Her call to the Green Party came with the in the last term of government as a volunteer within the Kirikiriroa branch and Greens on Campus Waikato.
In her spare time she enjoys sarcastic banter with friends and cooing at pictures of alpacas and cats.
Mark is a Wellington-based software developer and former Computer Science and History student, but that doesn’t mean he’s boring! On the contrary, he enjoys collecting postage stamps too. (No, not really)
Growing up in a climate change activist household, he first became a member of the Greens at age 12. Mark usually was aware of Green affairs, but it wasn’t until university he seriously became politically active. After learning about the effects of reforms like Rogernomics and Ruthanasia, he seriously took interest in what eco-socialism had to offer as an alternative to our current system.
Mark spends most of his spare time behind walls of code, bitterly trying to fix whatever mess he has created. When he isn’t coding, you can find him with his head deep in a history book or doco. He built and maintains this website, you can direct all your frustration here.
Lily Holloway is a student currently completing a degree in English and Ancient History at the University of Auckland.
When she isn’t working on promoting equality for all genders, sexualities, abilities and cultural identities (a mouthful, I know), she is working through her never-ending reading list or finishing up some creative writing.
Her favourite movie is The Godfather, her favourite book is The Bone People, her favourite poem is Howl and her favourite teletubby is Lala (obviously).
Adam’s a part-time law student, part-time climate activist from Ōtepoti, with a passion-bordering-on-obsession for climate justice. He’s sailed on the Rainbow Warrior, been a Sir Peter Blake Ambassador, and headed over to the UN to whine about how useless they are. When he’s not convincing strangers off the street to submit on the Zero Carbon Act he’s either talking shit chat or falling off a surfboard.
Elliot is in his first year studying Environmental Studies and Development Studies at Victoria- Of course unprecedented for a Young Green to be studying the environment!
While only recently formally involved with the Greens, Elliot has been passionate about Green issues since way back. His biggest focuses are on transport, energy and waste.
He loves photography and video: It’s rare for his camera to be too far away from him anytime! Sharing the Green kaupapa though photos and videos on social media is a passion.
