Here is a calendar of Green events in SE England: not just ones run by the Green Party, but also others of interest to Green Party sympathisers. Please come along to an event nearby, and meet your Greens.
Young Greens have come up with a helpful guide to planning an accessible event - lots of ideas here
We are campaigning to get more Green Party councillors elected to Oxfordshire County Council. Only the Green Party has been fighting back against the county council cuts to services. All the three old parties voted to close childrens centres, cut rural buses and this year reduce adult social care.
Oxford is a regional target. We need to keep 2 Green councillors and then get another elected.
Come campaign with us in our action weekend. There will be training and people to show Green supporters around Oxford.
We have county elections across the South East on May 4. Please help out.
We will need help in our targets in Surrey, Oxfordshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Hampshire, East and West Sussex. They will need help delivering eve of poll leaflets on the couple of days before the elections. On the day they will need tellers at polling station, people to knock up, backroom support with admin and data input. Please get in touch if you want to support one of our targets but you don't know who to offer help to. Whatever you can offer will be useful to try to get more Greens into Councils.
The 12th Green Economics Institute conference will discuss:
- Green Finance, Green Investment & Green Economics
- Reclaiming the Economy from Privatisers, Fossil Fuellers, Xenophobes and Divide and Rulers
- Keeping social and environmental justice alive in this new age of Barbarism - Post Truth and Post Science
Conference information – all information and documents including booking are available HERE

Deputy Leader Amelia Womack will launch the day at 10am. We are aiming to keep our Green Councillor in Reading and win another seat - Cllr Rob White will be explaining how you can help and why it's important to have Greens on councils across the region.
