The Global Greens Congress (GGC) — the primary decision making body of the Global Greens — is held approximately every five years in a different region of the world. The first Congress was held in Canberra in 2001.
In March–April 2017 the fourth Congress was held in Liverpool UK. A delegation of around 40 representatives from the Australian Greens attended the Congress. We also supported attendance for Asia Pacific Green parties (representatives from non-OECD countries) to participate in this global event. Key issues that arose relevant to our region include: frontline climate change issues, forest degradation and natural resource depletion, human rights issues, labour issues, landless people's, empowering women in Green parties, building a green economy, and many more. The Liverpool Congress Charter and videos of keynote speeches can be found at greens2017.org.
