Gina Dowding (born 15 July 1962) is a British politician who has been a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) for North West England since 2 July 2019, on behalf of the Green Party. She was elected to the role in the 2019 European Parliament Election on 23 May of that year.[1]

Before being elected as an MEP, Dowding was a Green Party councillor on Lancaster City Council from 1999 to 2007 and again in 2019, and a councillor on Lancashire County Council from 2013.[2][3][4]

Dowding first joined the Green Party in 1986 at the age of 22, citing a voluntary work visit to Bangladesh as a turning point in her awareness of inequality.[5]
