Questionnaire: Green Expat Mobilisation

Français Français  Español Español

At the Greens 2017 Congress a session about “Mobilising your Green Expats” was held and participants were interested to develop more collaboration among Green Parties to win more Green votes from our nationals living abroad and from the immigrants in our own countries.

Some countries have already granted expats voting rights and new forms of representation.  As we are a global political movement, we think that Green parties worldwide could especially benefit by more consciously including expats in party campaigns, communications and making good use of their close ties to more than one country.  

This questionnaire is the start of a Global Greens democracy campaign to increase the Green votes among both your nationals living abroad (expats) and the immigrants living in your country.  The questionnaire consists of 3 topics:

  1. Expats living in your country
  2. Your nationals living abroad
  3. Your party's opinion about a few propositions

Thank you for contributing to this project to capture the Green expat vote & elect more Greens to public office worldwide!

Deadline: Please respond by 3 November 2017 so that we can present the results at the European Green Party (EGP) Council meeting 24-26 Nov, in Karlstad, Sweden.
