Green Party Autumn Conference 2024, 6-8 September, Manchester Central


How we make policy at Conference

In the Green Party, policy creation and amendment is a member-led process as are decisions about how we organise ourselves. This is done by putting forward motions to Conference for debate and to be voted on. The ‘Agenda Forum’ is where members can propose and discuss ideas for motions for the Conference Agenda. You will find the Agenda Forum in the Green Spaces area of the members’ website.

There is additional help and some other requirements on how to write motions in the Standing Orders for the Conduct of Conference. Please speak to a member of Policy Development Committee if you are unsure about what to do (
