Year in Review - GGWN 2017 by Merja Kähkönen

This year has been particularly exciting for us, since we were able to meet in person! The Global Greens Women’s Network (GGWN) held two workshops during the Global Greens Congress, held in Liverpool, UK, in March-April 2017. Together with all of the participants, we developed an Activity Plan for the Network.

Gender equity initiative by Green Parties of the Asia Pacific region

The Asia Pacific Greens Federation Women’s Network (APGFWN) has recently begun a project to increase gender equity in our green parties in the Asia Pacific region. This is a first for our network, and we have set ambitious goals to support women to become Greens party members, to share leadership roles, and to become more skilled and confident in participating in political activities. Levels of women’s participation across the Asia Pacific in politics is varied, and our objective is to see APGF member parties significantly increase in membership levels and in women taking leadership roles in their parties, including as candidates.

Activity plan for the Global Greens Women's Network (GGWN)

Around 50 enthusiastic women gathered together the first thing in the morning of the opening day of #Greens2017 Congress in Liverpool. After 1,5 hours of discussion and work, we emerged with an ambitious list of new ideas for an action plan and a new Coordination. The participants came up with dozens of ideas of what they’d like to see the Women’s Network doing. The ideas were used to put together the action plan of the Network.

New Coordination elected for GGWN

The Atrocity of Syria: What to do?

Syria is the world’s current agony. The civil war is five years old. That is too long for a civil war. Ideally they would not occur at all. Once they occur, they should not be allowed to continue. What went wrong? The global structures for handling conflict are undeveloped. The structures, principles and methods we have for handling conflict date from last century – born in 1920, revised in ‘45. Those were the days of the primacy of the nation-state, with the principles of sovereign equality and non-interference in domestic affairs. In the 21st century, the world is a global village, where we tear each other apart.

The Atrocity of Yemen – What to do?

By: Kennedy Graham MP, Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand

Last week I commented on the atrocity that was occurring in Syria, and asked what the world, and we here in New Zealand, might do.

An associate-atrocity is occurring in the same region, in Yemen, but with less global scrutiny. The same questions need to be addressed.
