We have booked some Young Green acommodation for Conference available on a first come first served basis. The accommodation is available to YGs at a subsidised rate of £35 in total for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights YGs. Should you not require accommodation for all three of these nights then get in touch and we will see what we can arrange.
Alex tells us her experience of the First ever Young Greens Convention!
Green Party Conference is approaching fast. This will be a fantastic opportunity to get to know other Young Greens, participate in Green Party democratic processes, and get to know more about the Party. Book early to receive discount. For those students living on a shoe-string, free entrance to Conference can be obtained if you volunteer as a steward in exchange for a 3-4 hour shift each day.
