INTERNAL: The GPEW Disputes, Complaints and Disciplinary System
An opportunity to hear from members of the Green Party Regional Council, Disputes Resolution Committee,
Disciplinary Committee, and Appeals Committee how they currently manage disputes and complaints brought to the
national party. They will also share developments in how disputes and complaints might be managed in the future.
MEETING: Quaker Meeting for Worship
All conference delegates are invited to join a period of stillness, sitting together (physically or online) in silence to
listen the promptings of truth and love in our hearts. The Religious Society of Friends (more commonly known
as Quakers) is a faith group guided by the testimonies of equality, peace, truth, simplicity and sustainability. People
of all faiths and none are warmly invited to share in what we hope will be an uplifting and welcoming experience.
LUNCHTIME FRINGE: Our next steps to real democracy
Most people want to take urgent action on the climate and ecological emergencies.
But we’re hurtling towards tipping points that could lock us into the worst-case
scenarios because the political system is stacked against us. Without Proportional
Representation (PR) our survival is at risk - along with the planet, equality and peace. Despite
80% of the Labour membership voting for the party to support PR at conference, the vote fell.
What do we in the Green Party want to do next to make sure we get equal votes and real
democracy in time to survive?
INTERNAL “We’re still Europeans”: bring your own lunch social
An opportunity for all pro-european Greens, or those interested in why a Green Party is a pro-Europe party, to
gather and meet like-minded friends and colleagues, and to discuss the way forward in an informal way. There will
be an opportunity to meet a few of the existing core members of the new EU policy working group, and to find out
about ways in which you could get involved in its activities or as an adviser on some particular area where you have
expertise (e.g. trade, human rights, international affairs, research and knowledge exchange, freedom of movement,
regulation in agriculture and environment, Northern Ireland protocol etc.). Bring your lunch. We’ll mainly have
informal time to meet each other over a bite to eat and drink. You can sign up to be included in future work on this
project. (If you can’t come, but would like to be involved, please contact email@example.com).
