Global Greens 2001 is the conference of Green parties and political movements from Asia, the Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Americas, hosted by the Australian Greens. Come if you share our vision of a more ecologically just, peaceful and humane world. We look forward to meeting you in Canberra in April 2001.

Global Greens 2001
Old Parliament House
Canberra Australia

Next April, Greens from all around the world will converge on Canberra, Australia, for the Global Greens 2001 Conference. Please join us!

You are invited to Global Greens 2001 if you are --

a member of a Green party or political movement

a supporter of a Green party or political movement

committed to working for ecological justice, social justice, democracy and nonviolence

All participants will be able to attend the plenary sessions and take part in workshops and events before, during and after the conference. Green parties and political movements are being invited to nominate delegates who will represent them during the formal plenary sessions.

The conference is the centrepiece of two weeks of special events starting with the first ever meeting of Global Young Greens in Sydney on 7--9 April. As well there will be --

a workshop on alliances in Sydney on Tuesday 10 April
a round table on 'Rio+10', leading up to the tenth anniversary of the Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in Canberra
the Global Greens 2001 conference from 14-16 April in Canberra, including sessions on the Global Greens Charter and Declaration, practical Green politics, and global issues
tours and workshops after the conference, including a multicultural experience in Melbourne, a visit to the world's tallest hardwood trees in Tasmania, and seminars on nuclear waste and forestry in Western Australia.
Australia's national folk festival will be on in Canberra at the same time, so there'll be great music and dancing. And keep some space for seeing a bit of Australia while you're here.
