Date: Monday, 09 July 2018, Time: 10:30am UTC.

Christine then interviews the panel of speakers about their different experiences in coalitions. Audience members will be invited to join the discussion to reflect together on what it means in practice for Greens to think and act locally and globally at the same time.
