Green Party conference to be mostly private

From Morning Report, 6:13 am on 2 August 2019

The Green Party holds its annual conference this weekend - but media will be reduced to covering just two public speeches and what's called a World Cafe event.

The World Cafe is a speed dating type scenario, where people swap tables to discuss different topics, though those conversations will be off the record, unless advised otherwise.

Greens co-leader James Shaw spoke to RNZ's political reporter Charlie Dreaver about why the party wanted to keep much of its two-day AGM under the radar.
