The night before we left Senegal, we had a thank-you dinner for the volunteers who had been instrumental to the success of the event - and we had it at Haidar El Aliss Oceanium location - a couple of thousand hectares right on the Senegalese coastline and just down the hill from the presidential palace. Now, as I walk into my home in Brussels, the phone is vibrating with the news - Haidar is Senegal's Minister of the Environment.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to all our sponsors. Without your help, none of the great things we have accomplished these last few days would have been possible.
Dakar - The Global Greens attending the Dakar2012 Global Congress, which closed today in Senegal, adopted a series of resolutions to pave the way to stronger and even more cohesive green politics worldwide.
Representatives of over 70 green parties from across the world met for three days during this third Global Congress, the first in Africa, and tackled issues such as solidarity, democracy, biodiversity, climate change, and the future of the Global Greens movement.
