Jeanette Fitzsimons, Co-leader of the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand

Jeanette Fitzsimons is one of New Zealand's most high-profile environmentalists and has been Co-leader of the Green Party since 1995.

For the last 12 years Jeanette has seen the Greens raise issues and points of view never before heard in parliamentary debate in this country. In many ways they have changed the law, and are starting to change hearts and minds. Eventually the paradigm will change.

"Being Green is certainly not about forcing your lifestyle onto others," says Jeanette. "It's showing how it is possible to live a rich, fulfilling lifestyle with less impact on nature."
