The South West Green Party covers the area of the SW England European constituency. This extends from the Scilly Isles to the North of Gloucestershire and the East of Dorset. (It also includes Gibraltar although we currently have no members there.)
This site primarily serves to provide links to further information and contacts. News stories are more often found on the national website, your local party website, Molly Scott Cato's MEP site and various councillor and activist blogs as well as social media. Members will find much more information on the Members' Website.
The primary role of the Regional Green Party is in contesting European Elections and supporting and developing Local Parties to contest Local and Parliamentary elections and in developing local campaigns.
As a member your primary point of contact and activity is in your own local area - although there are always opportunities to work at regional and national level.
All local and regional officers and organisers are unpaid volunteers, giving their own time and skills to promote Green values in their communities and especially in the political space. The region employs two part-time paid staff funded by donations from members and others. We really need them to become full-time paid organisers and you can help by donating.
We have over 35 principal authority councillors elected right across the SW and over 100 parish and town councillors, Green attitudes are starting to infiltrate the town halls and council chambers, and many other councillors are very receptive to green ideas once they have the stimulus of Green colleagues on their council.
