The Green Party in England and Wales has cancelled its Brighton Spring conference due to concerns over the Coronoavirus. Their conference was due to take place in the city over the weekend of 20-22 March.
A statement on the Green party website says:
“As a democratic party, conference plays an important role in determining policy and the overall direction of the party, as well as providing a space for training and discussion for members.
However it would not be responsible to continue with our plans given the ongoing situation.
In lieu of conference, plans are already underway to provide members with access to fringe sessions and interaction opportunities online throughout the course of the weekend.
We will be offering refunds of fees for those already booked. We hope that, given the party will face a significant financial loss as a result of this decision, those members that are able to consider foregoing this will do so.”
