Two young members of the Green Party attended a convention in Nottingham where they took part in workshops, voted on policies and learnt how to be active in their communities.
Rosie Woolgar, 23, and Peter Scholes, 15, two members of the West Norfolk Young Greens, said the convention was the biggest ever held by the young greens with the highest number of attendees since they began.
Young Greens are underpinned by a safe spaces policy which reminds members to challenge oppressive behaviours like racism, sexism, ableism, and homophobia, in order to create a space where all feel comfortable and welcomed.
Since the beginning of this year, Young Green membership has risen from 1,800 to 20,000 people with members comprised of anyone under the age of 30, which makes up a third of the party.
Rosie said: “Groups like the West Norfolk Young Greens are incredibly important as they provide a space for like-minded people to meet-up, discuss common interests, and enjoy the informal setting, all while influencing their party and campaigning on issues that they believe in.”
