30 under 30 is a development scheme offering young people in the Green Party one year of expert training and mentoring, increasing engagement and knowledge of the Party and the wider political world. Our aim is for participants to emerge with the rounded base of skills and experience that would allow them to become the next generation of MPs, MEPs, Councillors, Assembly Members and top-level party officials.
The bigger picture
Young people in the party make up over 20% of the membership but are often less active in local groups, less visible within the national party and often feel numerous barriers to taking on responsibility.
We feel this project will help to offer young people the kind of support and profile building that will leave the Green Party more open to the idea of younger people taking positions of responsibility and to select them for winnable seats. We hope it will leave a new generation ready to take on the reins.What we offer
* 30 under 30 is open to Young Greens from 16-18 with full permission from parents or guardians. Training weekends involve overnight stays. If you don't live in the area the weekend is held, we offer to link you up with local Young Greens who have a spare sofa.
