Successful Reception & Exhibition at Greens Conference

Over 100 people came to the Green-History Project launch reception and exhibition at the Green Party Conference on 4th October.

Feedback has been very positive, but several people asked if the exhibition would be there for the weekend as there was a lot to see and they were quite engrossed. Sadly the conference couldn't accommodate it but we have made it available here so if you missed it you can browse at your leisure.
We were also given a load of fantastic new material by various kind donors, which our next task is to process and make available. So from our point of view a tremendous success. It will take us some time to get through this but you can expect a reasonable stream of updates over the coming months as we have a considerable backlog.
Items include many of the missing EcoNews and EcoBulletin newsletters from the Ecology/Green Party.
Honouring one of our founders:
We were delighted to welcome Lesley Whittaker, one of the original four founders of PEOPLE in 1973, at the reception. It was a great pleasure to meet her and hear first hand some of her memories of those early days. Lesley tells us she is considering writing a book about the time, and we look forward to presenting more of her recollections and reflections here.
