Elections training in Oxford

Come and learn how to win the 7 May 2015 elections for the Green Party in Oxfordshire, and the Oxford East advanced constituency.

Are you a new member? 2800 people joined the Green Party in SE England in 2014, 1800 in the last 3 months. Welcome. Come to one of our training and find out how you can help in our local and general election campaigns.
  • How do you get people to consider voting Green? Learn about leaflets and press releases.
  • How do you find people who will go and vote Green on polling day? Have a go at canvassing.
  • Where can we win? Learn about how campaigns are organised, and our strategies to win in 2015, despite England's unfair voting system.
Or are you an experienced member? Someone who has been waiting for the day when hundreds of supporters can come out to campaign with you? Come to one of our training days and learn new skills for the 2015 campaigns.
  • How can we get voters to listen to Green messages? Learn about the key campaign themes and our communications strategy.
  • Confident dealing with the media? Have a go at video interviewing, hustings practice and making your own videos.
  • How can you engage new volunteers and members in your campaign? Learn how to scale up with the Green surge.

This is a hands-on workshop, with plenty of opportunities to try out and practice different skills. Some you will learn on the day, such as canvassing and video production. Others will be introduced on the day, then you can sign up for webinars to learn from the confort of your own homes things like:

  • How to write blog posts, petitions, vote pledges, event and donation pages on this web site, and get supporters and voters to sign up.
  • How to use social media effectively to spread our messagess, and recruit new supporters. (The SNP created an e-mail list of 50,000 in 90 days in 2011 using the same NationBuilder software.)
  • How to effectively collect, share and use voter and supporter data. (Can we do data-driven campaigning like Obama?)

Finally, it is a great opportunity to learn from people from other local parties, including the Oxfordshire Green Party members who are campaigning in the Oxford East advanced constituency, one of the national Green Party targets.
