Local Party Twinning

Welcome to the Local Party Twinning programme

What is Twinning?

Twinning is when a Green parties at a local level (municipality, town or district) link with a Green party of an equivalent level in another country for the purposes of friendship, learning and support.

Why

Whenever and wherever in the world one joins a Green Party, one becomes part of a global network of fellow green members & supporters – and twinning is one way to reflect this in our local party activities and promotions.

Twinning enables the local level of Green parties to have a direct experience of the global dimension of Green politics.  We do this through friendships and direct mutual support.

How

The decision to twin with another local Green party is entirely up to the parties themselves.  The Global Greens organisation faciiltates the process.  

Next Steps:

  1. Look at the information about other parties currently present and pick out one that you'd like to Twin with.
  2. Submit information about your local party in the form below.
  3. The Global Greens secretariat will assist in setting up the twinning relationship between the parties

Recommendations:

  • Each party has its own Twinning Co-ordinator(s) to develop the twinning locally.
  • Organise several meet-ups per year, these can be online or in-person interactions determined by the twinning partners.
  • Local parties can twin with as many different local parties as they wish.
  • The Twinning Co-ordinators will be welcome to join a dedicated Facebook group to encourage feedback and sharing about the twinning programme.
