Join us in Copenhagen
We are delighted to invite you to join us in Copenhagen, Denmark on 2–4 December 2022 for the 6th European Green Party Congress.
Every five years, our Congress gathers over 1000 Green representatives, from ministers to grassroots activists in our member parties. This Congress is an opportunity to reaffirm our shared values and set the tone and strategic direction for the 2024 European Elections campaign.
Never have the Greens received the trust of citizens in so many local offices, regional parliaments and national governments, leading the crucial transformation towards a fair and sustainable future. We show in all the political layers our strong drive and values to change the future for the better, while demonstrating the willingness to find credible responses to the crises we are living.
Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has changed Europe. It has rocked the global security architecture, gave a new momentum to the accession process of several countries, and ignited a new boost towards energy independence. Now, Ukrainian flags are raised in every country. But Putin’s weaponisation of energy and food is having a devastating impact in Europe and abroad and could endanger European unity. We will be facing enormous challenges in autumn, from energy security to inflation and food security, to name a few. At the same time, we must continue to fight for climate justice as climate catastrophes increase in frequency and intensity.
This congress will be a decisive political and strategic moment to bring together Green Parties, activists and decision makers working on and putting into practice our Green answers to difficult and complex questions, such as: How can we continue to push for an energy transition while mitigating energy poverty in Europe? How can we enhance Europe’s unity in support of Ukraine and standing up to Putin’s threat? And how can we maintain solidarity as we face the triple crises of pandemic, war and climate?
We will also start laying the groundwork for the upcoming 2024 European elections. We will shape our shared vision for the future of the European Union, which has played a central role in weathering recent shocks but must ramp up efforts on the fight against climate change, the just transition and enhancing democracy.
We look forward to sharing more information with you about the 6th European Green Party Congress and the 36th European Green Party Council in the coming weeks. We encourage all Green party members and delegates to save the date, book their travels, and join us on 2–4 December 2022.
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.
