We are the only political party that presents a radically different philosphy that questions the basic ways our society operates. We don't believe that economic 'growth' as currently defined achieves wellbeing and fairness for our society. This is in complete contrast with the other main political parties who tell us that 'growth' is the only way forward.
We are the party that campaigns for both environmental and social justice - we understand how the issues are fundamentally connected. We can't have a fair and happy society if we continue to treat the planet as having infinite resources, as well as being a limitless dumping ground for the waste spewing from the current yet backward economic paradigm. We need big changes to our economic systems and to reduce the inequalities in our society and the wider world.

The Plymouth Green Party looks to champion this philosophy within our local political sphere (Plymouth City Council), as well as contribute to seeing Green Party policies and beliefs championed in national and international political domains, through the election of local Green MP's and MEP's.
We also aim to support local campaigns that champion Green Party lines of thought in creating a fairer, cleaner, more affordable future for everyone.
Details about our campaigns and policies can be found by clicking here, while you can find information (such as her work and campaigns) at the South West's fantastic Green MEP Molly Scott Cato website found here.
There are many Green Party supporters and voters in Plymouth - more than you might think! Each time we stand for election, we get more votes. To continue growing however we need more members and activists, so why not join us! Check out our "Get involved" page for more information by clicking here.
