The European Green Party is going to Greece. This autumn, November 9-11, 2012, the EGP Council will be in Athens, hosted by the Greek Green party, Ecologoi Prasinoi and we, the EGP, the committee members, the member parties, the delegates, our guests, all have the opportunity to stand alongside Greece, demonstrate our continued solidarity with the country and its people and the shared current crisis.
Welcome to Athens
As we advance our political discussion, we will also have the opportunity to embrace the Greek culture, explore their country, as well as meet with our Greek party members and guests so we can see, first-hand, how people are coping with the economic crisis. Whatever solutions are needed for Greece and its place in Europe, they must remember the impact on people, their lives, their families, their hopes, their futures. The human consequences of our decisions cannot be forgotten.

The countdown is now on until our pivotal Berlin Council between 23-25 November when we will come together among Greens to map out our shared future.
On top of the agenda will be the vote to elect our Leading Candidates (known as spitzenkandidaten) who will represent the Green family at European level and blaze a path towards the May 2019 European elections. Alongside this, we’ll be adopting our Manifesto and launching our campaign plan.
The European Greens were delighted to gather the green family from across Europe together with Groen, one of the Belgian Green parties, between 18-20 May in the city of Antwerp, Belgium.
