What an amazing experience Global Greens Congress Korea 2023 was!
Over 700 hundred of you joined us in Korea and online to share, listen, learn and commit to climate and social justice action. Greens came from over 80 different countries, and you showed the world what it means to be Green and stand up for climate action, social justice and a better world.
We in the Secretariat were blown away by the energy, passion and positivity you all brought.
The challenges we face in the world are big, but our hearts, policy and action are bigger.
Global Greens unite the four Green Federations, Global Young Greens, Indigenous communities, politicians, members, activists, academics, institutes, the U.N. and NGOs from around the green world.
DECLARATIONS and endorsements
Congress in Songdo, Korea was a crucial moment for the international Green movement. There have been many changes in the world, but also many of the same challenges have grown stronger.
The four federations took the time to reflect on the state of the world, and join together to create a commitment for urgent action on climate, biodiversity, social justice, peace and security, and democracy in the Korea Declaration.
This is a declaration of Global Greens unity in diversity, our belief that the era of polycrises also means that we can create holistic, interrelated solutions that benefit all people, and that these solutions are both possible and vital and must be acted on now.
Amongst many other agreements and endorsement, the world’s Green Parties formally endorsed the Stop Ecocide International campaign to give nature legal rights and defend against pollution and environmental destruction.

Together, we are building a vision, creating campaigns and policies that will help protect people and planet. All our actions now and in the coming years must create a wave of transformational change and pave the way for a sustainable 21st Century.
Inaction is not an option. Power and positivity is how we make a difference. Congress is where we connect local Greens to Global Greens.
