And we hope to have a 'Lessons from the Netherlands' session with representatives from their campaign, and a video greeting from Jesse Klaver himself!

There will be entertainment each evening including music from Seize the Day and the Fab Beatles as well as the opportunity to sign up for walking tours to make the most out of your visit to Liverpool. The large dining area will be the hub for each evening's activities and will provide a great opportunity to mingle with fellow Greens from all over the globe.
