GG Webinar - Green Politics in Coalitions

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

Greens2017 Keynote Speech: Christine Milne

Fellow Global Greens, 

Thank you for your warm welcome. After 30 years in Green politics, I cannot tell you how great it feels to be amongst such a dedicated group of Greens, of global citizens, representing the politics of hope, of unity and of love for humanity and the natural world.

Global Greens Action on Implementing the Paris Agreement

A Global Greens statement was produced to coincide with the Paris Agreement signing ceremony which took place in New York in April. The Global Greens campaign invited Green members in national parliaments to identify one fossil fuel reserve to leave in the ground and at least one fossil fuel subsidy to abolish or phase out and take legislative action accordingly. We also invited national Green Parties to submit their particular initiatives and to put out a press release on the day. No fracking said UK Caroline Lucas MP, no new coal or expanded coal or CSG said Australia’s Senator Richard Di Natale, and the complete transformation of the transport sector said German MPs. We are the only political party that is truly global in reach. It is an achievement to celebrate and a structure to use and improve. Our efforts to organise and demonstrate that we are greater than the sum of our parts is in its infancy. It reinforces our shared values and commitment when we campaign together or celebrate together Green wins on policy or in elections. But we don’t do it enough. Global outcomes need global action.

COP21 Message Global Greens Ambassador

"Think Globally Act Locally" has been the hallmark of Green Party action since we emerged as a political movement in the 1970's and in Paris it was wonderful to be part of hundreds of Greens from all over the world coming together as a growing force, sharing experiences and skills in the campaign to seriously arrest global warming and secure this global agreement.
