"The role of local councillors is getting more and more important, and the EGP is taking this into account. The European Elections have shown: The votes Greens gain we mainly gain in towns and cities with strong green parties! The weaker the party structure the less the election result. By continuing and improving networking and exchange of experiences and thus encouraging and strengthening local Greens, we take steps for stronger Greens on the national and local level. "
The reinforcement of the European Greens is essential not only for Europe and not only for each Green Party (and for the Swiss Greens indeed) in Europe. It is also very important – through the strengthening of the Global Greens ‐ for the preservation of the whole planet. The Swiss Greens has always been very interested to be part in this ongoing process.
