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.
Since its inception 25 years ago, the EU is for the first time in retreat with Brexit looming and populists attacking the values it holds at its core. We cannot sit back and watch as ardent anti-Europeans burn down the biggest peace project that’s ever existed. It’s also nearly three decades since we tore down that wall in Berlin and ushered in a new era on which the current European Union is based.
We will not afford to become complacent and let other political forces win the day. If we don’t set the agenda, others will.
Together with our German Green co-hosts Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen, let’s chart out a better course for Europe.
It’s time for us, as Greens, to proudly speak up for what we believe in. Let’s work together to lay the foundations for a more open, tolerant, and sustainable future of equal opportunity for all.
Put the date in your calendar and let’s create the Europe we want to see.
For the second year running, European Day at the journées d’été summer university is being co-organised by the French Greens, Europe Écologie Les Verts (EELV), and the European Green Party. This year journées d’été will take place in Strasbourg, France, from 23 - 25 August.
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.
