Out of over 130 Green Party councillors nationally, less than 10 of them are under 30.
We want to change that.
Young people have just as much to contribute to their local council as anyone else, and even bring a different set of experiences that can be just as vital.
We're trying to give Young Greens the confidence to stand for election as a council candidate, and help them persuade their local party they'd be a good choice.
As a smaller party there are also barriers to us getting elected that come from outside the party, and we hope to in the future be able to give advice on running elections and help you find that advice from other sources such as the Association of Green Councillors.
Plus, being a councillor is fun, interesting and gives you skills and experience you'd never be able to get anywhere else.
If you are standing for election or know of any Young Greens who are, could you please get in touch with Kat Driscoll, Senate Co-Chair by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
