Green Party candidate for Mayor - Ciaran Jebb

Ciaran Jebb chats to a local resident

Ciaran Jebb is standing for Mayor of Tower Hamlets

Ciaran's story


"I'm Ciaran and I have lived in Tower Hamlets for 7 years. I feel really lucky to be part of a diverse community with such a proud history. I am excited to be the Green Party candidate for Mayor of Tower Hamlets and also for St Peter’s ward on the council.


I joined the Green Party because of their radical approach – speaking honestly about the challenges of climate change, but also the opportunities that clean energy and a better relationship with the natural world provide. I work in sustainability for University College London where my job allows me to make real improvements to the environment.


I am standing for election because I believe that, while individuals can do a lot to lead an environmentally conscious life, big changes are needed at all levels of government in the way that issues like air pollution, good public transport and affordable housing and energy are tackled."
