EGP Local Councillors Network
Welcome to the Local Councillors Network!
We are lucky to have so many awesome local councillors across Europe (more than 23.000!), and we want to put those coming to the EGP congress in the spotlight!
So, if you’re a local councillor, be prepared for at least the following:
- Meet all those amazing other local councillors
- Two parallel sessions: one focusing on green transition and the other one on effective networking
- Side events: a tour through Copenhagen, and a networking coffee
- A super fun game of Local Councillor bingo 😎
… and a surprise goodie bag 💚
At our Local Councillors exhibition stand, you can usually find Liliane and Joline who can explain you all about the network, the benefits of joining, and exciting upcoming events. You can also use our stand as a meeting point (we’re close to the coffee!), and you can also use it to make selfies, videos and even work a bit if needed.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
The Green Campaign Handbook
The Green Campaign Handbook is a manual with the basics and the latest in campaigning tactics. This is where we share our lessons, so we start learning together. The Handbook is a creation from the European Green Party, with contributions from many member parties. Add your own lessons, or learn from others. Let’s win, together.
The Handbook is hosting a session The Green Wave continues: Unique campaigning lessons from Southern and Eastern Europe at the Congress on Friday at 12:00h. All those interested in electoral campaigning are very welcome to join.
Explore exclusive insights to other Greens’ campaigns by registering at the Handbook website: https://campaigners.europeangreens.eu/en/home
Do not hesitate to approach the Handbook Team during the Congress:

EGP Trans Inclusive Feminist Campaign
Trans Inclusive Feminist Campaign is EGP's internal campaign to ensure inclusive understanding of feminism across the board of the European green family. Rights of trans people are at the core of feminist debates. By amplifying the voices of trans people in our member parties we’re sending a clear message: Green feminism is trans-inclusive feminism.
Based in the resolution ‘Trans rights here! Trans rights now!’ adopted at the EGP Council in December 2020, we are committed to:
Support member parties in fighting for legal gender recognition based on self-determination, trans healthcare based on informed consent, and the protections of trans people against discrimination.
Strengthen our connections with actors working for trans rights and intersectional, trans-inclusive feminism in Europe
Support the participation of trans people in politics and amplify the voices of trans people in political debates.
Tilt! - The Changemaking Network
Tilt is a movement demanding that Europe works for all of us – not just a privileged few. Together, we’re connecting citizens and decision-makers in order to generate real change. Join us in the fight for a fair, green and democratic Europe!

Our member organisations comprise various backgrounds: local ecological groups, student unions, youth wings of Green parties and Green Youth NGOs. In addition, we are also the independent, official youth wing of the European Green Party (EGP).

Our mission and work is guided by our founding Principles of: Social Justice - Sustainability - Ecological Wisdom - Participatory Democracy - Nonviolence - and Respect for Diversity.
Global Greens are committed to uniting the Green movement, and forging fair, inclusive and sustainable societies where all voices are heard, and developing a society, economics and politics that works for all.
European Network of Green Seniors
The European Network of Green Seniors was founded 2005 in Brussels with the aim, to mobilize (green) seniors (55+) in all countries. Seniors should have the opportunity to participate in society and politics and to work in an intergenerational way with green policy and especially with questions affecting elderly.
During its 16 years of existence ENGS has worked for and with the growing aged population in Europe within the EGP framework and within the green parties in the member countries.
We are a stable organisation that has been very active despite our limited financial resources. We are determined to convince seniors to stay or become active in politics, to campaign and to vote for green parties. We have the necessary experience and we certainly have a future to fight for in all policy areas and, more specifically, when it comes to defending a proper space for and the dignity of the senior part of humankind. About activities - read the “History of ENGS” at our homepage or face book page.
The European Green Progressive Interfaith Coalition
1. We are all members of one of our European Green Parties and are at the same time also progressive people of faith, belonging to diverse religious and spiritual persuasions.
2. It is our goal to learn from and to support each other across the borders, cultures and belongings.
3. By forming a colorful faith coalition for diversity and human rights we want to set a counterweight to the rightwing parties, religious institutions and movements in our European societies.
4. We want to become a real political power to support the progressive Europe we dream about, cooperating in all fields of politics.
5. Our vision is an Europe with a strong constitutional democracy, a strong common welfare, clear ecological and social standards – being a clear European alternative to the USA and China.
6. As progressives we are radically inclusive and human rights oriented and standing in solidarity with all genders and queer people for common welfare and social justice. We transcend therefore the boundaries of our affiliations.
7. Write with us history and join the movement!
Green European Foundation
The Green European Foundation (GEF) is a European-level political foundation funded by the European Parliament. GEF is affiliated to, but independent from, the European Green Party and the Green Group in the European Parliament.
GEF’s mission is to contribute to foster greater involvement by citizens in European politics, therefore contributing to the development of a European public sphere. With green values at the forefront, GEF strives to streamline discussions on European policies and politics for the general European public. In its contribution to building a more sustainable Europe, the foundation acts as a platform to discuss Europe’s shared challenges, by bringing diverse actors together, from European to national foundations, think tanks, academics, and NGOs. We aim to bridge the gap between activism at the national level and EU-level decisions by coordinating a lively network.
Green European Journal
The Green European Journal is Europe’s leading political ecology magazine offering green and progressive ideas and analysis. With its online magazine that publishes weekly, biannual print issues, and long-read podcast, the Journal is the go-to place to find the latest analysis of developments from the cost of living crisis and the geopolitics of climate breakdown to decolonial ecology.
Committee of the Regions
The Committee of the Regions (CoR) is a political assembly of 329 locally and regionally elected representatives; it was created in 1994 and is a consultative body of the European Union. The group of the Greens in the CoR was established in February 2020 with 20 members and alternates from eleven countries and is the smallest of six political groups in the CoR. The current mandate will end in January 2025.
The Greens in the CoR work for a socially, ecologically and economically sustainable future. We think globally and act locally to make a fair Green change.
The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung is a German political foundation affiliated with the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens). Its primary task is political education and advocacy in Germany and abroad. Our main tenets are ecology and sustainability, democracy and human rights, non-violence and justice. In our work, we place particular emphasis on gender democracy, equal rights for minorities and the political and social participation of migrants. Our namesake, the writer and Nobel Prize laureate Heinrich Böll, personifies the fundamental principles we stand for: defence of freedom and human dignity, civic courage, open debate and the acknowledgement of art and culture as independent spheres of thought and action. As a think tank for green visions and ideas, we are part of an international network with more than 35 offices worldwide and with partner projects in more than 60 countries. The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union represents the foundation vis-à-vis European and international institutions, associations, non-governmental organisations and media based in Brussels. The office is a main point of contact for individuals, groups and organisations from around the world interested in EU politics and policies. The future of the European project and the role of the European Union in the world are at the centre of our activities and efforts.
