SCOTTISH BORDERS GREENS NEWS

Scottish Borders Greens continue to be active, mainly through our Facebook page, where we have been keeping you up to date with some of the work of our wonderful Scottish Greens MSPs. As you would expect there is no major programme of local events over the next few weeks and months.

During lock-down some members have written short articles and information pieces that we have edited into a short Newsletter which we hope you will find interesting.

The Scottish Green Party Policy Committee will be hosting a Policy Weekend from Saturday 16 – 17 May (10am-1pm each day) to allow members an opportunity to contribute to policy development on a range of topics, including: Health; Education; Biodiversity Conservation; Waste.

Details of plenary talks and workshop discussions will be shared soon. In the meantime, please save the date in your diary and contact policy@scottishgreens.org.uk if you have any questions. 


 

It was great to have Scottish Green Party co-leader Lorna Slater in the Borders on Thursday 30th January, delivering an excellent and thought-provoking talk on Antarctica and climate change at Stow Primary School, itself an inspiring centre for environmental education and activism.

We had a bumper audience (60) of local folk and no shortage of questions and debate – many thanks to Lorna, to Green Stow and of course Stow Primary School for hosting, and to everyone who came out on a cold windy January night!

Dates for your Diary –

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are not holding any branch meetings but the committee and some branch members are occasionally checking in with each other and having a ‘Green blether’ via Zoom, if you wish to join us look out for a branch email informing you of the next one.


 

 

All members are welcome to join us at our branch meetings, we try to car share wherever possible and have online conferencing for those wishing to attend but are unable to in person. Please contact us to enquire about these.
