Lorna Slater was elected MSP for Lothian Region in the Scottish Parliament 2021 elections and is now a minister in the Scottish Government. Along with Patrick Harvie MSP, she is Co-Leader of the Scottish Greens.
In her role as Minister for Green Skills, Circular Economy and Biodiversity, Lorna will focus on building sustainable industries in Scotland and a just transition away from fossil fuels. The implementation of a Green New Deal and a Green Deal for workers are needed to overhaul how our economy works and ensure fair well-paid jobs for generations to come.
Lorna lives in Leith Walk Ward in Edinburgh, and has had a career as an electro-mechanical engineer working in renewable tidal energy. In 2019 she spent a year studying leadership and climate change in the Homeward Bound leadership program, which included a three-week visit to Antarctica to see the devastating effects of this first hand.
