On Wednesday I am headed off to the Global Greens Conference in Dakar, Senegal.
While there, I am representing the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand, the youth wing of the Greens — the Young Greens — and you, if you’re a green-minded New Zealander. Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei and Green MP Kennedy Graham will also be representing New Zealand at the conference.
I also have the honour of speaking to the Asia Pacific Greens caucus at the conference about the recent election and how the Greens mobilised youth and used social media during the campaign. Then sitting on a panel discussion about the same topic.
My updates on the conference and Dakar will be posted here and on my Twitter. If you have any tips, hints, suggestions, or just want to say hi while I’m in Senegal, flick me an email here or by use the contact tab to the right.
A big thank you to the people who are helping me get there: Jon Field, Roland Sapsford, George Morrison and the rest of the Green Party Exec, as well as Pete Davis who arranged funding from Friends of the Global Greens.
