Dear <<First Name>>,

New Director for the Conservative Environment Network

Thank you for your support of the Conservative Environment Network. I'm delighted to introduce myself as the new Director.

I'm Sam Barker. I come with more than a decade of experience in public policy and conservative campaigning. I'm conscious that you and others in the network have even more experience, and am looking forward to working alongside you in the coming months. You can find out more about me and CEN here

We'll be setting out a programme of activity and events in due course, and will be in touch. In the meantime:

  • Do feel free to drop me a line -
  • And follow me on Twitter - @RepairingLease
  • Why not have a flick through our landmark publication Responsibility and Resilience (PDF)
Keep in touch! I look forward to hearing from you.

All best,

Sam says: "Brits want to make a honest living, live somewhere nice and do well by our families and friends. We want to eat well, breathe fresh air and enjoy our countryside at work or play."

"By focusing on environmental stewardship, we can deliver a more productive manufacturing and financial economy and a more resilient rural economy. We will strengthen our trading relationships and shape a more stable world. We will manage costs for consumers. By reducing both our environmental and our fiscal deficits we will leave a better legacy for our children and grandchildren."

Conservatives are not merely friends of the Earth – we are its guardians and trustees for generations to come… No generation has a freehold on this earth. All we have is a life tenancy – with a full repairing lease”

Margaret Thatcher

It is conservative instincts – for example, over property rights – which safeguard the environment better than a bureaucratic or collectivist approach.
