Your local Greens
We are an active team, and hold regular planning and social meetings on the second Thursday of every month. All members and supporters are very welcome.
And 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 – please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com, 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.
