The European Green Party and the 900 participants of its 6th Congress, gathered in Copenhagen, agreed on a first strategic direction for the 2024 European elections campaign. The European Green Party will aim to lead the fight to be at the center of a progressive majority in the 2024-2029 European Parliament.
While Europe and its citizens are battling through multiple crises, Green parties and decision-makers on the ground are shaping and implementing solutions to ensure citizens are protected and supported through these troubled times.
While implementing pragmatic short-term solutions to weather the crises, the Greens are reasserting their long-term compass of hope and action for a Greener and fairer future. The resolution outlining the path towards the 2024 European elections campaign is a core element of this long-term compass. It reasserts the ambition of the Greens to make these elections truly European: the European Greens will stand strongly behind the Leading Candidates process and will keep fighting for a more Europeanised debate.
Beyond its strategic direction for the 2024 European elections, the European Green Party adopted a series of resolutions to keep fighting together with its member parties on pressing topics affecting citizens in Europe and beyond. All adopted resolutions can be found here.
Mélanie Vogel, European Green Party co-chair and French Senator comments:
“The 2024 European elections are coming at a decisive moment for European democracy. Democratic and rule of law backsliding, attacks on human rights, women’s rights, and migrant rights must be faced with a fierce opposition and concrete proposals to restore our social contract. Our Green family will now shape these proposals towards the 2024 European elections. Our common vision to shape an inclusive Europe, where the rights of all citizens are protected and where inequalities are shrinking, has the power to mobilize and restore citizens’ confidence in a truly progressive democratic European project.”
Thomas Waitz, European Green Party co-chair and MEP adds:
“Conservatives who have now been steering Europe for too long are using any opportunity available to slow down, roll back or delay climate and environmental action. They are leading us towards a climate disaster all the while creating a more unequal and divided Europe. We need a strong, Green-led progressive majority in the European Parliament in 2024 to engage an immediate change of course. We will drive the fight for socially just climate action that answers the current crises European citizens are going through as well as the need to ensure a livable future for all on the long-term.
Our Green family gathered in Copenhagen for our Congress is sending a strong signal: our political family is as united as ever, and we are ready to lead this fight together ahead of the 2024 European elections.”
