Annual General Meeting -

The 9th Annual General Meeting 
Green Party of New Brunswick

April 25, 2015
10989, rue Principale

Rogersville, NB

Registration will open at 8:30am with the business meeting in the morning and a panel discussion with general discussion after lunch 

This year, the Green Party of NB will hold its AGM in Rogersville on Saturday, April 25. The "business" portion of the meeting will be held in the morning (starting at 8:30), while the afternoon will be have a "world café" format to encourage an open and inclusive discussion after a brief presentation of the panel using the theme Another New Brunswick is possible.

We hope this discussion will give participants an opportunity to get motivated in light of New Brunswick's politics to take a stand on the issues and to begin to see themselves as agents of change. The session will be divided into two sections with the first half looking at the future of New Brunswick. We will ask a question such as: how to be progressive as a society in this period of "belt tightening" After the discussion, the second question to be like: what is the role of a political party in the creation and implementation of this alternative?
The Green Party of NB was formed in 2008 and now has two elections to it's credit. In 2014 the first Green MLA, leader David Coon, was elected in the riding of Fredericton South! The Green Party believes that we must re-conceive our economy to serve our communities to protect and restore our environment. The Green Party of NB values rural communities and believes that they should have full responsibility for their future supported by a robust local economy. For this reason we chose to hold the AGM in a dynamic community in an Acadian area.

Our Principles

>Living within Our Ecological Means

A culture of cooperation, caring and understanding is essential to ending violence in our society. Rehabilitation rather than vengeance must be the goal of our justice system.

> Local Self-Reliance

We must have the opportunity and the responsibility as citizens to contribute to the common good, which requires that all have the capacity to participate in community life.

> Real Democracy

Everyone must have equal access to the necessities of life and be treated with dignity and respect. Treaties with First Nations must be honoured.

> Social Justice and Equality

We must be able to participate in decisions that affect our lives and be guaranteed that our votes are reflected in the make-up of the Legislative Assembly.

> Active Citizenship

Our communities should be in control of their own destinies, supported by strong local economies, and sustained by local sources of food and renewable energy.

> A Culture of Peace and Respect

We must live within the ecological limits of the Earth, while meeting our needs without threatening our children's future or the survival of other species.
