EGP Council in Malmö in full swing
The Green movements European leg currently meets in Malmö: all Green Parties of Europe plus some affiliated groups are represented here. There are some intersting points on the agenda. The election of a new committee of the European Green Party (EGP), a discussion on the common election-campaign this year that brought yet again a bunch of Greens into the European Parliament, and some resolutions on issues ranging from the Stockholm Program of the EU Commission (tabled by the Young Greens) or how to deal with Russia.
I am here as one of the German delegates, together with my friend Anna, who know works in the European Parliament, and some old Greens. We are strongly supporting the young critical cause and so far have received some warm reactions of not only the other German delegates (among them the head of our Party, Cem Özdemir as well as young MP Manuel Sarazzin) but from the other country delegates as well.
Further, I try hard here to lobby for the Global Young Greens. The upcoming Congress in Berlin still has a lack of funds we have to close. A lot of Greens are friendly to our cause and could imagine to support us. The way is still long, but we will manage. 🙂
