    Join us for our quarterly Dalston Ward Catch-up!

    We'll be meeting at Cafe Route in Dalston Square for coffee and strategising at 9.30am on Saturday 10th February.

     

    Open to the public – we warmly welcome new members from all of Hackney’s diverse communities!

    💚 Do you feel excited when someone talks about the Green Party?
    💚 Do you want to see more Greens in Hackney Council?
    💚 Do you feel excited when someone talks about improving workers’ rights and protecting trees?
    💚 Do you want to see more Green policies passed at Hackney Council?

    At the Hackney Mayor election in November 2023, the Hackney Greens got our best election result ever! Our vote share rose to almost a quarter of the Hackney electorate. But we are only as strong as our membership and our volunteers.

    We need people to help us shape the future of the Hackney Green Party.

    Your enthusiasm and energy is needed! All skillsets are useful whether you prefer sitting quietly at your laptop and entering data or going out and about and meeting Hackney residents along with our Green Councillors.

  • Being a Councillor

    Round Chapel Old School Rooms in London, United Kingdom

    Being a Councillor: Presentation and Q&A

    Tuesday 30th January, 7.30pm to 9pm; Round Chapel Old School Rooms, Clapton

     

    Just over 18 months ago, Hackney Green Party were lucky enough to get the wonderful Alastair Binnie-Lubbock and Zoë Garbett elected to Hackney Council. Since then, they've had rave reviews from residents, key policy wins on the council, and have continuously campaigned on issues related to Green values. But they need help! That's why we're looking for our next group of potential councillors to get involved as part of the Green team to show the people of Hackney the impact Green on the Council can have. 

    This in-person meeting will be an information session from the Councillors and the Elections team and aims to cover questions such as:

    • What's it like in the daily life of a councillor?
    • What happens at a council meeting?
    • What issues do you get involved with?
    • How could I best support our councillors?
    • How do I get selected to be a councillor candidate?

    The session will be informal and be a fantastic opportunity to ask any questions you have and learn more about the selection process. There is no obligation to put yourself forward having attended the event and we encourage everyone for supports our values to attend.

    Hope to see you there,

    Your Hackney Green Team.
