Individual Supporters Network
Apart from working with our Member Parties, we also welcome individual activists who wish to support Green policies.
By connecting people with each other through our party’s channels, the network aims to encourage cross-border activity to promote the exchange of practices and views on a truly European scale.
If you want to help us build this new network and take part from the very beginning, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will keep you informed about the progress of the network and take on board your contributions for a successful start to this journey.
The network, also known as the European Queer Greens, gathers members of Green Parties who are interested in working on LGBTIQ rights on a European level.
It provides a platform for debate, discussion, mutual support and communication with Green stakeholders in Europe.

Local Councillors Network
The network provides a platform for Green Councillors that work on a local or regional level to share their experiences and best practices.
It regularly organises the popular Green Cities Conference, which brings together local councillors from across Europe’s cities in order to provide Green answers to the common issues they face in the field.

Meetings are also hosted at every Council of the European Green Party, and these are accessible to all event participants.

Future of Europe Working Group
The working group creates a space for inclusive discussions on the future of the European project.
It covers topics such as what it means to be European, what the current state of the European Union is, and what Greens can do to contribute to shaping its future.
Its aim is to sustain in-depth discussions on the challenges related to Europe’s integration process. This is done while elaborating and further defining the position of the European Green Party on the matter.
The working group meets approximately four times a year and includes the participation of external experts. Furthermore, it organises public events at least once a year.
