Thanks for your interest in the Global Greens Congress 2023 Korea!

Thursday 8th, Friday 9th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2023. Congress will be at the Songdo Convensia Centre, Incheon, South Korea.

The Convensia is very close to the main International airport, Seoul Incheon International Airport (ICN). ICN is the main international airport for Korea with flights coming in from a wide variety of countries. There is a convenient shuttle bus (#303, #303-1) which travels from the Airport terminals to Songdo Convention Centre, taking around 30-40 minutes. Alternatively, there is the subway or a taxi. More information about transportation can be found here.  

More information about Incheon can be found here

Congress will run over 4 days. Beginning after lunch, Thursday (8th June) will have time dedicated to Federation meetings, and Sunday (11th June) will finish in the afternoon.

Each country with at least one Full Member party can be represented by up to 3 delegates with voting rights for the formal decision-making sessions. If there is more than one Full Member party in the country, those parties must decide how the delegate positions will be divided between them.

Each country with at least one Associate Member party can be represented by up to 3 delegates with speaking rights, but not voting rights, for the formal decision-making sessions. If there is more than one Associate Member party in the country, those parties must decide how the delegate positions will be divided between them.

Additionally, anyone can attend Congress to watch/ observe the formal delegate sessions, and to be involved in discussions in the general sessions.

There are several hotels in the area including: Hotel Sky Park Incheon Songdo, ORAKAI Songdo Park Hotel, Songdo Central Park Hotel, Holiday Inn Incheon Songdo, Ramada Songdo Hotel, and Best Western Harbor Park Hotel. 

We are negotiating rates with key, quality hotels to lower the cost of accommodation, and we will provide more information about that shortly. 

We also understand many people may have questions about obtaining a visa. We recommend you check whether the country your passport is from is eligible for the K-ETA (Korea Electronic Travel Authorization). Many countries are eligible for the K-ETA, please see here for more details. If you are not eligible for the K-ETA, the Global Greens can provide some assistance with visa applications. A letter of recommendation for all non K-ETA visa applications can be provided by the Global Greens and Green Party Korea.

We are now accepting proposals for sessions and have had some exciting contributions so far!

You can submit your proposal here. We will contact you in due course for next steps.

The Joint Congress Steering Committee are reviewing Session Topics on an ongoing basis so we encourage early submission. Deadline for submissions is March.

Global Greens are entirely member-funded, so do please consider a donation. This will help us fund the conference and sponsor delegates from across the globe to ensure better access and participation. Equality of participation is a vital part of Global Greens philosophy. No matter how big or small, everything makes a difference.

While we are still living in unprecedented times due to the global pandemic the Congress Working Group is monitoring current restrictions. Effective June 8, 2022, South Korean government has lifted its quarantine requirement for unvaccinated overseas arrivals. (No vaccine required). Effective October 2022, Korean government lifted PCR test requirements. No testing required for entry into Korea.  Although more positive, the situation is still dynamic. Do make yourself aware of any changes to travel guidance.
