New keynote speaker added to Annual Conference programme - Dr Joan Walley MP

29th January 2013

The EAUC is delighted to confirm that Dr Joan Walley, MP for Stoke-on-Trent North and Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee of the House of Commons as our new day 2 (Thursday 18 April) keynote speaker!

Joan is the 2004 winner of the Epolitix Environment Champion Award and has long combined her environmental concerns with a commitment to her native North Staffordshire.

Joan was elected Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent North at the 1987 general election. She soon became shadow spokesperson for Environmental Protection and Development and then for Transport, a post that she held for the five years between 1990 and 1995. Prior to the election to parliament, she was a member of Lambeth Council.

Joan has been one of the key MPs raising the public and political profile of such issues as climate change, sustainable transport, alternative energy, and responsible government procurement. She is honorary president of the Institute of Environmental Health Officers and takes a keen interest in public health matters. She also knows that making big change is achieved through small steps, and works to link the local with the global. She is Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee of the House of Commons.
