You are warmly invited to join our 25th Council Meeting, taking place in Glasgow, Scotland, from 2 - 4 December 2016.
It is an extraordinary time for Europe, and this is why we feel it most appropriate to bring the entire European Green family together in Scotland - a country that itself faces exceptional circumstances following the recent referenda on Brexit and Scottish Independence and the political unrest in Westminster.
As Greens, we want to be at the forefront of the issues that are pressing Europe. For this reason, our Council will have a truly European discussion about current European questions: How do Europe and the UK look following the Brexit vote? What is the best way forward when fighting tax havens and ensuring that the gaping loopholes favouring the wealthiest don’t persist? What role can research firms, start-ups and regulators play in promoting green innovation? What vision do we have for the future of innovation and employment? How can Europe's youth get engaged in Green politics and ensure that the Greens remain a pro-youth political force? All this and more will be explored!
Please do register and be ready to come to Glasgow full of ideas, passion and energy, where we will shape our demands for the future - together!

See you in Glasgow!
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.
The European Greens were delighted to gather the green family from across Europe together with Groen, one of the Belgian Green parties, between 18-20 May in the city of Antwerp, Belgium.
