The Green Party is the only party that has the policies to tackle head-on the economic crisis and at the same time lay the foundations for a sustainable and fair society.

Life on Earth is under immense pressure. It is human activity, more than anything else, which is threatening the well-being of the environment on which we depend. Conventional politics has failed us because its values are fundamentally flawed. The Green Party isn’t just another political party. Green politics is a new and radical kind of politics guided by core principles like building a sustainable society that guarantees our long-term future.

Humankind depends on the diversity of the natural world for its existence. Green Party members do not believe that other species are expendable. Our actions should also take account of the well-being of other nations, other species, and future generations. We should not pursue our well-being to the detriment of theirs.

A healthy society is based on voluntary co-operation between empowered individuals in a democratic society, free from discrimination whether based on race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, religion, social origin or any other prejudice. The Green Party believes in democratic participation and accountability by ensuring that decisions are taken at the closest practical level to those affected by them.
