This year's Convention in Waterford will be held on March 24th - 26th in The Tower Hotel. We are very excited to be back in Waterford again, and the Waterford Greens are doing a tremendous job in organising a fantastic line up of events, debate, speakers and entertainment.
You can register here.
I am delighted to announce that our keynote speaker this year will be Peter Willcox, whom many of you will know as the former captain of Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior serving alongside our very own Senator Grace O'Sullivan. He will be interviewed in the main convention room on Friday night (24th).
In addition to the regular debates on motions, we have confirmed side & breakout events including a seminar on mindfulness and mental health, a panel discussion on the media, politics and the challenge of 'alternative fact' politics, a facilitated discussion on achieving a Just Transition, meetings for Young Greens, Mná Glasa and New Members and much more to be confirmed.
Added to this we are delighted to announce the return of exhibition stands - featuring a range of local and national sustainably-focused businesses who will be there to inform and educate about their products.
Our friends in Waterford are also working on outdoor pursuits for Members - in particular it is hoped to have an organised cycle of the newly opened Deise Greenway on Sunday 26th. If you can't bring your bike to Waterford, we hope to arrange rental from a local supplier - so please indicate on our registration page here if you would like to rent a bike.
Most importantly - Members will have ample time to meet, catch up and share a drink. We have arranged for live entertainment in the Tower Hotel bar on Saturday night.
Hope to see you there.
