We are the South East Green Party, the SE England part of the Green Party of England and Wales.

We stretch from Kent in the East, to Hampshire & Isle of Wight in the West, up to Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire. In the last Parliamentary Election over a quarter of a million people voted Green in the South East. We stand for: opposing airport expansion for its climate and local impacts; for proportional representation; a positive future in the light of Brexit; human rights as the Tory government scraps the Human Rights Act, against TTIP and fracking. Support our Green voice in Parliament: Caroline Lucas MP, our Green Member of the European Parliament, Keith Taylor MEP, our local councillors and join our campaigns across the South East.  

We're currently raising funds to support our regional co-ordinator role. Please donate here if you can.

Green Party members who want more information about the workings of the party, key documents and internal resources, should visit the members' website - our South East region pages have lots of information to support you.

Green Party autumn conference

The Green Party autumn conference is at the Edgbaston campus of Birmingham University from September 2-4 2016. You will have access to discussions on post Brexit issues, the Progressive Alliance and climate change. The leader election results will be announced at conference and there will be training on all kinds of topics to support your work with your local party. And it's a great chance to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

You can book for the conference here.

On Friday evening you can join the South East table for dinner at about 8pm (after the panel discussion). It will be a buffet with the cost TBC (so no obligation at this stage to commit - this is just an indication of interest).

If you'd like to do that please let us know so we can book the right number of tables.

RSVP and we'll send further details later on (your RSVP will indicate you've booked for the conference but this is just about the table on Friday night - you still need to book for the conference on the link above).

East Surrey Green Party September Members' Meeting

This month's meeting includes a short business meeting for members only, from 7.30–8pm. We will be selecting target candidates for next year's local elections.

Then from 8pm all supporters are welcome for a discussion on What is the Green Party for?

  • In this time of political change and unprecedented environmental, economic and moral challenges, what role should a progressive party play?

  • Under 'first past the post' electoral systems, is a vote for Greens wasted?

  • Is the Green Party a potential party of government, or is it a party that seeks to challenge and hold politicians to account? 

  • What power do we have to bring about change, and how can we best use that, locally and nationally?

It promises to be a lively discussion - please bring your ideas to add to the mix.

The discussion will last for about an hour, then we can move to the pub where informal discussions can continue.

*The meeting room is just inside the Travelodge entrance, in the archway adjoining the Toby Carvery. The pub is beside Redhill train station (exit via Platform 3 and turn right). There is car parking on site, and the meeting room is disability access friendly.
