European Federation of Green Parties

The European Federation of Green Parties is organizationally distinct from Green members of the European Parliament - who are called the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament.

The European Federation facilitates communication between member parties. At meetings it arrives at shared manifestos for European elections, and provides an opportunity for networking and the discussion of strategy. It also gives support to smaller or newer parties in order to strengthen them. For example, they did work in Spain to unify divided groupings in each region, and succeeded to an extent - two regions elected Green MPs to the Spanish Parliament.

At the time of writing (January 2003) the Federation includes 32 Green Parties in 29 European countries.
