This is a virtual event

This Summer, the Green Party are selecting an ordered list of nominees for the House of Lords. The next time the Greens get offered a seat in the Lords, it'll be the top person on this list who gets it.

With the deadlines for climate action approaching ever nearer, and our country in dire need of new solutions following the Coronavirus crisis, it’s more important than ever to have the right Green voices heard in Parliament.

And it’s as important than ever that young voices are represented in the debate about who should step-up. Young people are underrepresented in politics on the local and the national scale, but it’s us who face living with the effects of climate change and a broken economy.

Greens often lead the way on youth and students issues, and it’s key that as Young Greens we make sure that our nominee for the Lords does so to.

That’s why we’re hosting a hustings for the nominees. Join us to hear the candidates set out why they think Young Greens should vote for them, and to put your questions to them.

We’ve invited all the candidates for leader to this event, and will update this form when we hear who will be coming.

During the hustings, we’ll ask the candidates questions from a mix of pre-submitted questions and questions asked on the night. If you’d like to submit a question for the chance for it to be randomly selected, make sure to fill in the box on the form.

We've got two more hustings coming up as part of this summer's internal elections:

  1. Sign up to the leader hustings we’re holding on the 21st of July.
  2. Sign up to the deputy leader hustings we’re holding on the 28th of July.

You can visit our Green Party internal elections hub here to find out more about this summer’s elections, and see the answers that GPEx and House of Lords list candidates gave to our questions about Young Greens issues.

To ensure that the voices of young people and students are heard, these hustings are open only to members of the Young Greens. This means that only members of the Green Party aged under-30 or in full time education may attend. However, the hustings will be recorded and posted on our Youtube channel.
