Special Interest Groups

Your invitation…

Dear GLD member,

You may previously have seen some mention of our idea to create some Special Interest Groups, to talk about policy and provide campaigning materials on related topics. If you have not seen anything about it - this is the LAUNCH!

We have been talking about it for too long, now is the time to put the talk into practice and get on with it!

Special Interest Groups - the IDEA

The idea for creating such groups is to tap into the very wide and deep expertise (and concern) that is spread throughout our considerable membership - that means YOU.

We are aware from our records that many of you have years of experience and/or specialist knowledge that can enliven and edify our political debates on many areas of environmental interest. We also suspect that there is also much more interest, expertise and experience about which we do not yet know, which we should be able to bring to bear to CHANGE THE WORLD.

After all, that is what we political folks are all about isn`t it? We are motivated by a real desire to make the world a better place, because we either suspect - or we KNOW - it can be made into a better place by doing `this` or by stopping to do `that`.

So, if you have such expertise or experience in `this` and/or `that`, then please consider the possibilities opening up for you to help us get to that better place.

FIVE Groups

At the moment we have set ourselves the task of setting up five groups with, currently, a very broad remit. We intend and expect that this remit should inevitably get refined once the groups have met and started their discussions. Where each group goes from here will depend very much on the final composition of the groups and the knowledge and skills base we can tap into.

For the moment each group will have two main points of contact, with two named coordinators or via info@greenlibdems.org.uk

The four groups we have so far defined are these:

We expect the next Zoom meetings of each of these Special Interest Groups will take place after the Lib Dem Spring conference. So, if you are interested in participating in one or more of them, please contact one of the Coordinators and also send your contact details to info@greenlibdems.org.uk so that we can bring our SIGs to life.
