The Victorian Greens are moving office!
We've been on Little Collins for 5 years. In that time, we saw our wildly successful 2014 State Election, in which we doubled our representation in State Parliament. And in 2016, we faced a Double Dissolution federal election and achieved swings of up to 10% in key seats, paving the way for some big wins soon, followed by a local government campaign that saw Greens' council representation increase from 17 to 29 across the state.
Now, we've outgrown the space. Our positive, professional and people-powered campaigns had more than 6000 active volunteers last year. If we're going to build for next year and win balance of power in both houses of State Parliament and triple our representation in the federal house of reps, we need to go even bigger.
So we're saying goodbye to this office, and we'll be moving to a new home in September. Come and join us in celebrating all that we have achieved in this space. Snacks will be provided, and you won't find cheaper drinks anywhere else in Melbourne!
