Global Greens Congress Delegation Identification Form:

At the Global Greens Congress each country with one or more Full Members of the Global Greens is entitled to 3 delegates with voting rights.

Please submit the form below for each person who will be on a country's delegation.

The earlier you submit this information the better, so that we can communicate relevant information to the Delegates to prepare for their responsibilities at congress.

We strongly encourage delegations to have gender balance and at least one young person (under 35).

Read more information about Delegates below or go to the Delegation identification form below.

Recommended Guidelines for Delegate selection

Each Green Party and country may choose its own method for selecting its delegation.  However, here are some recommendations for parties to consider: 

  1. Delegations have gender and age diversity, with at least one female and one youth delegate in particular.
  2. Delegates are the representatives of their country and are either elected or appointed by their respective Global Greens Member Parties, and should have clear political mandate.
  3. Each Delegation appoints a "Delegation Leader" who is responsible for the internal organisation and distribution of responsibilities within the delegation and for communication with the Global Greens and the country's Member parties regarding the congress event.
  4. Delegations are expected to participate in the process of strengthening the Global Greens overall and the relationship with the GG Members of their country and to report back regularly from the Congress and other meetings of the Global Greens to their respective Members.

Is the Delegate aged under 35?
Role and participation
The Global Greens are actively fundraising to support participation at the Congress but it is very unlikely that we will be able to support everyone who would like to attend. Please say whether this Delegate is likely to be applying for a Global Greens Travel Grant to cover some or all of the cost of participating.
Your questions and comments can also be sent to the Global Greens Coordinator, Keli Yen, at [email protected]
