Here is a calendar of some Green Party events in SE England.
Surrey, like other parts of the country, must act to respond to the ever-increasing challenge of climate change. With reducing resources facing local Government there is a need for a wider strategy to achieve the necessary carbon reduction targets.
The Surrey Climate Commission is looking to meet this need by providing the necessary leadership and direction from a joint venture formed from experts from the academic and business community, public institutions and NGOs.
An evening of speakers, discussion and action planning. Please book your place on the Eventbrite link.
On 13th July in Portsmouth the South East Green Party is holding a full of day training and networking to review our May 2019 successes and look forward to 2020.
South East Greens quadrupled their numbers of Councillors in May 2019 from 18 to 81. Now is the time to get involved and see how we can keep these seats, make change happen and win many more seats we can win in 2020 and beyond. We know that Green Councillors make a difference, declaring climate emergencies, tackling homelessness and standing up for local residents. Join us to find out what difference you can make locally and how you can get Greens elected near you.
