by Highlands & Islands Greens in Scottish Highlands

We need your help to get ready for our biggest ever local election campaign!

We have a bold vision and commitment to getting local candidates out to meet people from all over their wards! We want to empower and support local groups to run unique campaigns and showcase issues in their area - Greens value local democracy and we will put this at the heart of our campaign.

In 2016 we proved we can win when John Finnie was elected as our regional MSP -  we ran an incredible Holyrood campaign and want to make history this year by electing our first Green Councillors.

Let's get ready to Go Green 2017!
