The European Green Party (EGP) will hold its 25th Council Meeting in Glasgow, Scotland, on 2 - 4 December 2016.
This is going to be the first major event of any of the European political parties in Scotland after the Brexit vote.
In this challenging time for the EU, the European Green family will gather in a country that itself faces exceptional circumstances, following the recent referendum on Brexit.
The 46 EGP member parties will debate and vote on how the relations between the UK and the EU will have to look like, with a special attention devoted to the situation of Scotland and Northern Ireland. They will also deal with the consequences of the US presidential elections especially regarding climate policy.
Some major EU political issues will also be faced, like tax and youth policies.
The opening session will be held by the Co-Chair of the European Green Party Reinhard Bütikofer and the Co-Convenor of the Scottish Green Party Patrick Harvie.
It will be preceded by a press conference on:
Friday 2 December at 11:30.
