What We Stand For

Imagine a political system that puts the public first. Imagine an economy that gives everyone their fair share. Imagine a society capable of supporting everyone’s needs. Imagine a planet protected from the threat of climate change now and for the generations to come.

That’s the future we want to create and we believe we have the means to do it. Green Party membership is soaring as more and more people are recognising that the politics of the future doesn’t have to look like the politics of the past.

Vote Green and you can help us build a society that works for the Common Good.

 

The Green Party in Plymouth

The Plymouth Green Party champions this philosophy within our local political sphere, 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.

HERE ARE SOME OF OUR PLYMOUTH 2019 LOCAL ELECTION POLICIES:

  •  Carbon Neutral Plymouth: Deliver radical reform and hold the Council to account on their commitment to becoming a carbon neutral city by 2030
  • Supporting Business to go Green: We'll create a "Green Innovation Fund" to help businesses make eco-adaptations and generate jobs.

  • Pesticide-Free City: Pesticides impact our health and damage biodiversity, contributing to loss of pollinating insects. We would radically cut the Council's use of these hazardous chemicals.

  • Sustainable Transport & Clean Air: We'll promote measures to reduce vehicle dependency and provide better options for public transport, cycling & walking.

  • Renewable Energy: We will campaign locally and nationally to increase the use of renewable energy within homes and businesses.

  • Protecting our Ocean: The Council's "Marine Park" proposal is simply a branding exercise - we'll ensure the plan also delivers improved environmental standards.
