Western Metro Futures Project

The Western Metro Branches will meet in Footscray to discuss the strategic and philosophical direction of the party.


What is the Futures Project?

The AGV is commencing a year-long member consultation program to hear from and meet with as many of our members as possible to talk about the future and to discuss fundamental questions about how we all see the Victorian Greens.

The review of the 2018 state election recommended that the party conduct a wide-ranging and in-depth discussion about its key strategic and philosophical directions. It outlined key points for discussion and deliberation amongst members, including: 

  • What is our theory of change, that is, how do we best achieve social change;
  • The role of local Councillors, members of parliament and the party in the context of our theory of change and strategic vision. 
  • What should be our electoral goals and how do they align with our theory of change
  • Whether our organizational structures are best serving us now and into the future;
  • How the culture of the party can be strengthened to achieve our aims; and
  • How to involve our members more meaningfully and to engage more diverse members and supporters;

The aim of the Futures Project is a revitalized AGV, with improved organizational structures and coherent and complementary electoral and party strategies that guide our parliamentary / local Councillor and non-parliamentary work.

The Project will be implemented through a series of member meetings held centrally, regionally and in secure online spaces, a program of engagement with branches and working groups and will be supported with research papers and forums on various issues such as governance, membership, and campaigns.

The Project will be administered by a steering committee, which reports to State Council via State Executive. The Steering Committee is made up of Victorian Greens members, a state office bearer representative and representatives of the state and federal party rooms.
