Josh Matthews for Lewisham West & East Dulwich

I'm delighted to introduce myself as your Liberal Democrat candidate to be the new MP for Lewisham West and East Dulwich.

When people hear “Liberal Democrat” I want them to think positive politics. A feeling of hope. That things can be better. That they can demand better. The Liberal Democrats are the party offering a positive vision of what society could be. The freedom for all of us to live our own versions of a best life. In a fair society. With true equality of opportunity. Our policy and our people mean we are set to take the most positive politics possible into this year’s elections. Connecting national policy to people’s lives and local areas. Built on the deeply personal reasons we’re all Liberal Democrats.

I work professionally to fix the climate and sustainability emergency. As "part activist, part analyst" I try to combine science and strategy with the emotional case for change. Across the highly connected environmental, social, and economic challenges we face. Through research, advising businesses, and building partnerships. I have worked with a number of the world’s largest firms to improve their environmental impact and find their biggest spheres of influence in tackling the climate crisis and all manner of sustainability goals. I have spoken at events including COP26, the UN climate summit, hosted in Glasgow in 2021. Originally, I trained as a chemical engineer.

I grew up in South Wales and before moving to London, I was a City Councillor in Cambridge. As the opposition spokesperson for climate, environment, and the city centre, I've seen how international, national, and local community priorities work together. And how to push the politicians and organisations in charge to do better! I hope I can put that experience to good use in representing you and your community.
