Kirsten Robb is the first Green Councillor to be elected in South Lanarkshire. She was brought up in East Kilbride and lives in Calderwood, in the ward she represents, with her husband and two school age boys. Kirsten sits on South Lanarkshire Council’s Executive Committee and Climate Change committees, amongst others.
Before being elected Kirsten managed a team working on community action projects in rural Lanarkshire but took time off to volunteer full time in her community, successfully opening up more multi use games areas, saving and improving parks, and getting the area fixed up. She has also been a community councillor for the ward, started up a number of local organisations and currently volunteers for EK Community Litter Pickers, Outlet Play, Calderglen Volunteers and the Space to Play campaign.
Kirsten has been a member of the Scottish Green Party for 20 years.
