The Green Party has taken the decision to cancel its Spring Conference which was due to take place in Brighton on the weekend 20-22 March.
As a democratic party, conference plays an important role in determining policy and the overall direction of the party, as well as providing a space for training and discussion for members.
However it would not be responsible to continue with our plans given the ongoing situation.
In lieu of conference, plans are already underway to provide members with access to fringe sessions and interaction opportunities online throughout the course of the weekend.
We will be offering refunds of fees for those already booked. We hope that, given the party will face a significant financial loss as a result of this decision, those members that are able to consider foregoing this will do so.
Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry, Co-leaders
Liz Reason, GPEx Chair
Mary Clegg, Chief Executive
Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader
