In this webinar

Green activists discuss their experience forming coalitions in different contexts: as a candidate in elections, as a parliamentarian at the local and national levels, in government and within the Global Greens family.

The webinar begins with Christine Milne speaking about her autobiography An Activist Life and some lessons learned from her experience being part of the Australian Green's development since its founding in 1972, contesting elections, being in parliament at both the local and national levels and being in a government coalition.

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.


Speakers:

"Thinking and acting locally and globally at the same time" was Christine's call to action for Global Greens in her Greens2017 speech, and in this webinar Christine discusses with us what that means in practice.
