Green Party of Vancouver Policy

Think the Green Party is only about the environment? Think again.

Green Parties worldwide are developing policies and strategies to tackle head-on the economic crisis and at the same time lay the foundations for a sustainable and fair society. Ask yourself – what other political parties have such global partners or vision?

Green Parties around the world share common values as expressed in the Charter of the Global Greens. The policies of the Green Party of Vancouver are based on these six fundamental principles:

Ecological Wisdom

We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific values of all forms of life, including non-human species.

Non-Violence

We declare our commitment to non-violence and strive for a culture of peace and cooperation between states.

Social Justice

We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development.

Sustainability

We recognize the scope for the material expansion of society within the biosphere, and the need to maintain biodiversity through the use of renewable resources.

Participatory Democracy

We strive for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in decisions which affect their lives.

Respect for Diversity

We honour and value equally the Earth’s biological and ecological diversity together with the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.
