With the next Scottish Parliament election due in May 2021, it’s time to select our Green candidates for Holyrood 2021.

The selection process for all eight regions in Scotland will be conducted nationally, and nominations for candidates will open later in August.

Thinking of standing to be one of the Green candidates for Lothian region? We would urge all members to consider standing, but particularly women, LGBTQIA+ members, young, disabled and BME Greens, who continue to be underrepresented in political life.

This session is open to women and non-binary members only. Facilitated by the Scottish Greens Women’s Network, this Q&A looks at the reasons for standing and why diverse voices are needed in parliament, and is open for your questions. Alison Johnstone MSP will join us to give a personal perspective.

Note: The Q&A session on Tuesday 13 August is open to all members.
