About Ellie

Ellie Chowns with EU mug

Ellie is the first ever Green MEP for West Midlands. She is a Lecturer at the University of Birmingham, specialising in International Development. She has spent 15 years working for international NGOs including VSO, Christian Aid and Concern Universal in the UK and Africa. Ellie Chowns serves as a Green Party councillor on Herefordshire Council. She was the Green parliamentary candidate for North Herefordshire at the 2017 General Election.

I believe passionately that we are better off in the EU. Only by working together can we address urgent challenges like climate breakdown. We need change - and Greens offer something different from the ‘business as usual’ politics of our broken political system.
