John Whitelegg is Professor of Sustainable Transport at Liverpool John Moores University and Professor of Sustainable Development at the University of York. He is widely tipped to become the first Green MEP in the North West region.
The original meeting at the Liverpool Guild of Students has already generated so much interest that a second meeting has now been organised earlier on to take place in the south of the city. The first meeting will now take place on Monday at 6pm at Liverpool Hope Student Union (the Boardroom), off Woolton Road. The later meeting will take place in the library room of the Liverpool Guild, off Mount Pleasant in the city centre at 7.30pm.
Professor Whitelegg will be speaking about anti-racist campaigning, improving Britain's transport system and his plans to improve the NW region if elected as an MEP this June.
Currently, Professor Whitelegg is one of eight Green councillors in Lancaster, and Chair of the Planning Committee on Lancaster City Council. He was elected in the Green Party's most successful ever local elections in 2003, with a Green councillor elected in Manchester and a 15% share of the vote in the Abercromby ward in Liverpool.
