Welcome to Young Greens East
29/05/16 update: We are slowly refurbishing our website so some sections may be unfinished or under construction. We aim to be fully set-up by the end of June 2016. Currently developing: About Us section.
Young Greens East are the regional Young Greens organisation for the East of England. We cover all members and groups within Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. We exist to provide guidance and support to Young Greens groups and societies, but also arrange fun things like training events, regional socials and our famous Regional Convention.
Young Greens groups exist at all levels of the Green Party, from local to regional to national. We are currently expanding our base within local parties in the East of England and aim to have as many active Young Greens groups as possible up-and-running in the near future. We believe that young people are not getting a suitable voice in politics and wider society, a problem we see tackled best within a framework of Green politics. By organising at multiple levels we aim to increase youth involvement in politics and spread the Green message to a younger audience. We believe that young people are crucial component in our struggle for a better future.
On this site you will find information relating to all of Young Greens East’s workings. Visit our About Us section to find out about how our organisation works and who the people behind it are. Our other sections will be filled out in due time so please keep an eye out on our Facebook page and join our Facebook group for updates on our progress. We also hope to have a Support Hub page up-and-running soon to assist YG activists in setting-up and running their groups. We hope this is a useful resource for all.
