29TH COUNCIL - BERLIN
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.
Since its inception 25 years ago, the EU is for the first time in retreat with Brexit looming and populists attacking the values it holds at its core. We cannot sit back and watch as ardent anti-Europeans burn down the biggest peace project that’s ever existed. It’s also nearly three decades since we tore down that wall in Berlin and ushered in a new era on which the current European Union is based.
We will not afford to become complacent and let other political forces win the day. If we don’t set the agenda, others will.
Together with our German Green co-hosts Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen, let’s chart out a better course for Europe.
It’s time for us, as Greens, to proudly speak up for what we believe in. Let’s work together to lay the foundations for a more open, tolerant, and sustainable future of equal opportunity for all.
Put the date in your calendar and let’s create the Europe we want to see.
We invite you to join us in Riga, Latvia, on 3-5 June 2022. We are looking forward to gathering as a family once again in these unique times to shape our political action and elect the new Committee of the European Green Party. Come participate and contribute your ideas on how to fight for a more free, peaceful, and democratic Europe that addresses the social, economic and climate crises today.
