The Global Greens Congress returns to Asia-Pacific for its 5th congress and 20th anniversary. This exciting event, uniting the green world, will be held in Korea from June 8-11, 2023 and will bring together the four federations and the Global Young Greens.
Over 4 days, Greens from across the world will come together for policy discussions, decision-making meetings, plenary sessions, and networking events. And of course, to get inspired and motivated by fellow Greens across the passionate and dedicated global movement.
The World Green Congress Korea 2023 aims to unite the global green movement from over 100 different countries, together to protect people and the planet.
The World Green Congress remains one of the rare events that unites the international green movement. At the heart of their program are two important subjects, namely threats to the climate and to democracy. The resolutions submitted by green parties around the world and voted on at the event constitute an important part of the Congress.
Since the last Green Congress 6 years ago, the planet has witnessed an unprecedented increase in climate disasters and attacks on democracy. Through this Green Congress which opens this Thursday, June 08, 2023 in South Korea, climate and environmental experts intend to implement the changes necessary to create a better today and a fairer and more sustainable.
Global Greens brings together the four green federations, Global Young Greens, indigenous communities, politicians, members, activists, academics, institutes, the UN and NGOs of the green world.
The Congress will be an opportunity for attendees to connect with the rest of the green movement and prepare with what they need to know to make a difference in their community.

After all this time apart, Congress is going to be exciting and we’ve got a lot of details to work through with our hosts, the Green Party of Korea! As a people-powered movement, we are calling on our networks to assist us in delivering a fantastic Congress for our community.
