We currently have four Green Party councillors representing local residents in the Liverpool City Council chamber. Our councillors and local party activists work all year round - not just at election time – holding the majority Labour administration to account and striving to make council decisions beneficial for everyone. Our Green councillors have been leading the fight on climate breakdown; the health of the city, its residents and our planet underpins everything that Liverpool Green Party is working towards.

Could you take a lead in our city, acting to solve problems and collaborating with others to fight for a sustainable, healthier and greener community? Green voters elected a record number of local councillors in 2019 and across the globe the Green vote continues to grow. Voters are taking action on climate breakdown and social inequality, people want change.

No one expects you to do everything yourself. Along with local, regional and national training and support, there is the Association of Green Councillors (AGC). The AGC is an independent and autonomous network of around 600 elected Green Party Councillors from every level of local government. It exists to provide support to Green Party Councillors as well as to those aspiring to become elected.
