Get involved

This is a great time to get involved with the work of the Green Party.  Party membership is now soaring again following recent local election activity and success, and the growing recognition of the threat of climate change.

  • Membership currently stands at over 4,500 in the North West (compared with less than 2,000 five years ago).
  • North West Green Parties continue to win council seats at all levels - we doubled our councillor numbers in the North West in May 2019.
  • In June 2019, the North West elected its first Green Party MEP: Gina Dowding. Visit Gina's website.

The coming years will bring new challenges. We will have, for a number of years, a Conservative government which pays scant regard to the coming climate emergency. The Labour party, although it proposed its own Green New Deal, suffered a catastrophic defeat.  It's likely to undergo a lengthy period of introspection under a new leader. The UK left the EU on 31 January.  We will not know the terms until the end of 2020. Will the UK government ditch the EU's standards on our environment, on our working conditions, on our air quality and on our food? Despite the challenges, the need for a consistently radical Party with policies to tackle our social and environmental crises is as strong as ever. 

Any help you give us, from a regular donation to work on the doorstep, will make a real difference to getting more Greens elected in your area, where they can create a fairer, cleaner, more affordable future for everyone. 

Join the Green Party

As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election.  In your local area, you can help get Green councillors elected:

  • by delivering leaflets,
  • by fundraising,
  • by knocking on doors and talking to people.

Your regular donation will help us stand more candidates for more elections, and help the party do more to support the work of our members across the region.
