Closing Date: August 31,2011:

The Global Greens Coordination (GGC) is calling for ideas and proposals from all sections of the Global Greens family to help prepare for the third Global Greens Congress, the first in Africa.
As movements in north Africa take the lead in the democratic struggle, the Dakar Congress will be an opportunity to learn from and exchange with the African Greens.  A Global Green response is needed to address the challenges of a growing global food crisis, widespread government inaction on climate change and looming economic threats.  Congress 2012 will bring together Green experts, activists, and politicians from around the world to formulate a Global Green agenda for the second decade of the 21st century. 
The themes for Dakar 2012 will be:
  • Tackling climate change and supporting the clean energy revolution
  • Working for a Global Green New Deal and green economy
  • Promoting and supporting democracy and peace in Africa and globally
  • Protecting biodiversity
  • Strengthening the Global Greens
The GGC is inviting all groups that are part of the Global Greens family* to put forward ideas for speakers, workshops and side-meetings, proposals for resolutions including for possible common global projects, and other suggestions for consideration by the organising group.  These should preferably fit within the agreed themes but may cover other issues as well.
