In 2018 Natalie was listed as one of the UK’s ‘50 New Radicals’ by The Observer / Nesta and in the same year the University of the West of England awarded her the Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science in recognition of her campaign work. She won the Sheila McKechnie Award for Environmental Justice in 2017 for City to Sea's #SwitchtheStick campaign and is proud to have been named Bristol 24/7’s Woman of the Year for 2018.

City to Sea is an award-winning non-profit organisation running campaigns to stop marine plastic pollution at source. Their initiatives empower individuals to make a difference in their communities, encourage corporates and retailers to pioneer plastic-free alternatives and pressure government to adopt new legislation.


Rt Hon Sir Edward Davey MP, Treasury and Business Spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats

Ed Davey is the Treasury and Business Spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats and is the MP for Kingston & Surbiton. He was the UK’s Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change from February 2012 to May 2015.

Ed oversaw the legislation and implementation of Electricity Market Reform, Britain’s world-leading creation of a low carbon electricity market. Under his leadership, the UK saw huge investment in renewables, set up Europe’s two leading CCS projects and signed heads of terms on the first new nuclear power station in the UK for over 30 years. Ed was very active on energy and climate policy internationally – especially on the EU’s Energy and Environment Councils. He set up the “Green Growth Group” of EU Ministers to build a successful coalition for the EU’s ambitious “2030 Energy and Climate Change Package”. He led the UK’s push for a stronger EU Energy Security Strategy and headed the UK delegation at 3 UN climate change summits and was active in planning the UK and EU approach to the successful Paris Climate Summit.
