The Socialist Environment and Resources Association (SERA), founded in 1973, is an independent environmental association affiliated to the UK Labour Party as a socialist society.[1] More recently it has used the name "SERA – the Labour Environment Campaign", rather than its full name.

SERA campaigns to promote progressive environmental policies within the Labour Party. SERA's co-Chairs are Melanie Smallman and Jake Sumner.[2]

SERA has members and local groups across the country, and has good links both within the UK Labour Party and outside the Labour Party with many environmental groups. SERA has contributed to policy development on transport, energy, water, waste, and biodiversity.

The SERA National Executive numbers 16 people, elected annually at an annual general meeting held in November.[3] Executive members currently include Alan Whitehead, Daniel Zeichner, Alex Sobel, Polly Billington, Leonie Cooper, and Samantha Heath.[4]
