Dorset Climate Change Action Conference is to be held on Saturday 21st October at St Aldhem’s Church Centre, Spa Road, Weymouth. Its objectives are to inform about climate change and promote action, to challenge politicians to take action and to recruit new Transition Town Weymouth and Portland members. Amelia Womack, Deputy Leader of the Green Party will be speaking, we are delighted to say, along with representatives from Labour, the Conservatives and the Lib Dems. It’s a full day conference with speeches in the morning and workshops in the afternoon.

As a member, you can be as active as you like - from armchair and online support to standing as a candidate for election.
We meet once a month, 7.30pm, rotating around Bridport, Weymouth and Dorchester. All members and supporters are welcome. Much of the meeting is about organising our work, but we always try to devote about half the time to discussing some policy issue of current interest.

We are particularly keen to find more volunteers with fundraising experience or press, research and administrative skills. Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.

The West and South Dorset Green Party has sought to represent our communities by election to local councils (see the Elections page) with great success. We now have enthusiastic, committed and hard-working Green Party councillors on the local Town, Borough and County councils and we aim to increase Green representation wherever possible.
We need like-minded people to stand for election at every opportunity and to join our existing councillors in promoting our policies that work for the common good. We'd particularly welcome, encourage and support those that would consider standing. the next scheduled elections in our area are in Weymouth in 2018 and in the District of West Dorset in 2019 but these may change if Dorset becomes a Unitary Authority. In order to be eligible you must be a paid-up member of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates and would particularly welcome people from Purbeck and Swanage.
