 New stretch target

The cost of return travel from UK to South Korea, and related carbon offset is a little over £1,000. There is minimal funding to support this delegation so funds raised above this amount will go towards other expenses incurred.

Green Party at Global Greens Congress

My name is Catherine Dawkins, and I am honored to have been selected as the sole delegate for the Green Party of England and Wales at the upcoming Global Greens Congress in Korea in 2023. I am asking for your support to help me attend this critical event.

Why Global Greens Congress matters

As a long-time member and passionate advocate for the Green Party, I believe that the Global Greens Congress is a crucial opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals from around the world, share best practices, and develop new strategies to fight climate change, promote social justice, and protect the environment.

Attending such an important event requires significant financial resources, including travel, carbon offsetting and accommodation - that's why I need your help.

With your support, I can represent the Green Party of England and Wales at the Global Greens Congress, bringing back valuable insights, ideas, and connections that will benefit our party and our mission.

I am committed to ensuring that our party and our voice is well-represented at this critical event, and I am confident that, with your help, we can make it happen.

About Me...

I live in Southwark, London and have been involved with the Green Party since 2015. On joining, I dove straight into volunteering. I have led and supported multiple groups, ranging from campaigning for local parties (in traditionally yellow, blue and red areas!), leading the London Young Greens, collaborating with international Green Parties and running for local election myself in 2022.

Alongside my fellow candidates, in the Southwark ward of Nunhead & Queens Road we increased our vote share by 199% which translated to roughly 1,000 voters changing their minds and voting Green - something of which I am immensely proud.


Outside of the Green Party, I also volunteer with Greenpeace and I work for a charity based in South London which supports North Korean escapees in the UK and beyond. I have been learning Korean for five years and am excited about practicing my skills outside of my work. I want to raise awareness about the situation of the North Korean diaspora community at the conference, among many other topics.

If you are able to support this crowdfunder, I would be so grateful. I am also keen to hear from people about potential resolutions they would like to be brought forward. You can contact me via my local party - [email protected]

Thank you again!
