Répondez au GG WOMEN'S enquête

Dear Green women,

Following the creation of the Global Greens Women's Network (GGWN) at the Global Greens Congress in Dakar in 2012, we are finally getting organised and will have some opportunities to undertake activities and work in the near future.

We will be holding some meeting of the network at the next Global Greens Congress in Europe, which will be held in 2017, from March 30 to April 2, in Liverpool, UK.

For now, we want your feedback about what we should do between now and 2017, including the Congress.

For that, we have prepared a simple survey for you, which shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Please take a short while to complete it.

We are thousands of Green Women around the world, but we are not connected. We want to build together a global greens sisterhood, a network with activities and useful tools for all the Green Women. Will you join us?  Please don’t forget to sign up here to be in our database to keep informed. Also, follow us on Facebook!
