This Programme isn’t like other parties’ manifestos, it has not been squeezed through focus groups and stripped down according to the latest polling. Instead it has been built from policies proposed and voted on by our members, looking to secure the long term future of the places and people they love.
It’s a vision of a better world, and together we can deliver it.
We believe in the need for urgent collective action on climate change.
The promotion of dignity, equality, social justice and human rights for all.
Quality of Life
Our institutions, our economy, and our society should work for us all.
The Green Party is the only major political party in the UK that is committed fully to a life based on democracy and justice within the planets limits.
I joined a party that was ‘the least bad of the biggest two’ where I lived, but I quickly realised that I couldn’t campaign for a party that didn’t share my commitment to environmental and social justice. The planet doesn’t have enough time for compromise or to hope to change other parties from the inside.
I joined in 2004 to counter a government that had taken us into an illegal war, ignored huge protests against war, privatisation and neoliberalism. Since then I’ve stood for election, been a councillor, been part of local and national campaigns, and been one of those many radical dissenting voices.
What the Green Party means to me is that, it is genuinely the party that stands for people and social justice, and I know I can add more value the great work the party is already doing.
