Edinburgh Young Greens

EYG is the youth wing of the Scottish Green Party in Edinburgh.  It is represented on the Edinburgh Green Party committee, but remains a self-organising group with its own meetings, elected officials, and campaigns. Edinburgh Young Greens encourage the participation and contribution of all members, regardless of experience.

The youth wing remains politically active; often engaging in demonstrations and protests that coincide with the interests of the party.
