EGP Local Councillors' Network
The European Green Party is proud to present a new online platform to connect Green Local Councillors who work on local or regional level in Europe!
The platform offers a space for Green local councillors to share projects, events and ideas to work with in local municipalities. It enables them to share experiences, best practices, and advice with fellow local councillors facing similar challenges.
Local councillors are demonstrating what a difference Green participation in governments can make. This platform is where they can share projects, results and outcomes. They can ask specific questions and get immediate feedback from fellow Green local councillors.
All Green Local Councillors from across Europe are welcome to participate. By working internationally and exchanging ideas, we can provide Green answers to the common issues Europe’s cities face on their way to a just transition.

EGP Trans-inclusive Feminist Campaign
What is the Trans-inclusive Feminist Campaign?
EGP's internal campaign to ensure trans-inclusive understanding of feminism across the board of the European green family.
Rights of trans people are at the core of feminist debates today and we want to amplify the voices of trans people in our member parties and to send a clear message: Green feminism is trans-inclusive feminism.
How are we doing that?
By supporting our member parties in building trans-inclusive positions in their own policy work.
By acting as a bridge between our member parties in sharing knowledge, experiences, and best practices on how to be more inclusive within the party.
By equipping our member parties with arguments so that the green feminists can be leaders in the wider societal fight for trans-inclusion.
Why do we need trans-inclusive feminism?
Because there is an attempt to gate-keep women’s spaces and reduce the experiences of womanhood to biology only.
Because trans women have been at the forefront of feminist movements and have helped build intersectional feminism from the ground up.
Because trans people are facing increased prejudice, discrimination, and violence from conservative right-wing actors and anti-trans groups, and we can't allow that.

Greens/EFA Campaign against gender-based violence
We all want to feel safe. To wear whatever we want without getting attacked. To walk fearlessly in the streets alone at night. We want a world free of violence, especially of violence that’s triggered just because of your gender identity or expression, or because of who you are.
Gender-based violence is a human rights violation that affects 1 out of 3 Europeans. Cases of gender-based physical, psychological and sexual violence have increased across Europe under the pandemic, in what the United Nations has called a “shadow pandemic”.
The EuropeaCommission has drafted a law proposal, which would oblige European governments to put an end to the violence. We want to make sure that the upcoming directive will be comprehensive by preventing, responding to, and ending gender-based violence online and offline, across the whole EU.
European Network of Green Seniors
The European Network of Green Seniors was founded 2005 in Brussels with the aim, to mobilize (green) seniors (55+) in all countries. Seniors should have the opportunity to participate in society and politics and to work in an intergenerational way with green policy and especially with questions affecting elderly.
During its 16 years of existence ENGS has worked for and with the growing aged population in Europe within the EGP framework and within the green parties in the member countries.
We are a stable organisation that has been very active despite our limited financial resources. We are determined to convince seniors to stay or become active in politics, to campaign and to vote for green parties. We have the necessary experience and we certainly have a future to fight for in all policy areas and, more specifically, when it comes to defending a proper space for and the dignity of the senior part of humankind. About activities - read the “History of ENGS” at our homepage or face book page.

The European Green Progressive Interfaith Coalition
1. We are all members of one of our European Green Parties and are at the same time also progressive people of faith, belonging to diverse religious and spiritual persuasions.
2. It is our goal to learn from and to support each other across the borders, cultures and belongings.
3. By forming a colorful faith coalition for diversity and human rights we want to set a counterweight to the rightwing parties, religious institutions and movements in our European societies.
4. We want to become a real political power to support the progressive Europe we dream about, cooperating in all fields of politics.
5. Our vision is an Europe with a strong constitutional democracy, a strong common welfare, clear ecological and social standards – being a clear European alternative to the USA and China.
6. As progressives we are radically inclusive and human rights oriented and standing in solidarity with all genders and queer people for common welfare and social justice. We transcend therefore the boundaries of our affiliations.
7. Write with us history and join the movement!
