Join the campaign

ElectionNight

Edinburgh Greens are active all year round, campaigning for a bolder Scotland that puts social, environmental and democratic justice at the forefront of our nation’s politics.  At the moment we are ramping up our activity in preparation for the council elections on 4 May 2017. We can only do this with the help of volunteers (members and non-members alike) who give a few hours of their time to help spread the Green message across the city.

If you would like to get involved or have any questions just fill in the form below and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. You can also email campaign@edinburghgreens.org.uk or call/text Chris on 07860 777148. We will also gratefully accept donations. See below for a list of some of the activity happening between 20th and 26th April 2017 – again, contact Chris if you can get involved.
