EVENT: European Green Party Congress
DATE: 11 - 13 November 2011
PLACE: La Maison de la Mutualité, 24 Rue Saint-Victor, 75005 Paris
With France warming-up for next year's Presidential and parliamentary elections, the location of the congress was an easy pick for the European Greens. The congress is co-hosted by the European Green Party and Europe Ecologie–Les Verts, the French Green Party.
The congress constitutes a great opportunity to meet fellow Greens from around Europe, and from further afield. The congress venue will be the famous Maison de la Mutualité in the very heart of Paris (5eme arrondissement). Over the past century, the building has traditionally been at the heart of the French Left. With a total refurbishment this year, the Congress will be one of the first events taking place there—a good start for a new tradition in the long history of the building.
