Your local Greens
The North Edinburgh & Leith sub-branch (Greens Persevere) meets on the second Monday of every month, blending in-person meetings (when distancing allows) with online remote access. We welcome new members and non-member supporters who want to see a fairer, greener Leith.
You don’t have to attend meetings to be involved. Can you help deliver printed materials in your area? Would you like to join one of our campaigns, or help with fundraising? We’d love to hear from you – get in touch!

The sub-branch sends out monthly emails to members with news of meetings, events and campaign action.
Volunteer, join, donate
We’re always looking for volunteers to help us make Edinburgh a greener and fairer city. If you’d like to get involved in our campaigns locally, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or find out how to volunteer more widely in the city here.
You don’t have to be a Scottish Green Party member to be active with the local group, but of course we would urge all our supporters to consider joining. Join the Scottish Green Party here.
We always need help with funds for campaigning. Please donate if you can; or if you have a fundraising idea, email us.
