The Green Party candidate for Hornsey and Wood Green will focus on the importance of living alongside the environment – something “only the Greens can really deliver”.
Sam Hall, a therapist and environmental consultant, is hoping to win the seat in the June 8 general election.
Mr Hall said the main reason he is standing is because “environmental issues aren’t given enough weight”.
He added: “As a father and a local resident I want to make sure we breath fresh air and our kids engage with nature.
“From nature to human wellbeing the Greens make the links between social, environmental and economic issues.”
