The Green Party/ An Comhaontas Glas


Party Principles

The Green Party/Comhaontas Glas adopted at its foundation these seven principles by consensus:

  1. The impact of society on the environment should not be ecologically disruptive.
  2. Conservation of resources is vital to a sustainable society.
  3. All political, social and economic decisions should be taken at the lowest effective level.
  4. Society should be guided by self-reliance and co-operation at all levels.
  5. As caretakers of the Earth, we have the responsibility to pass it on in a fit and healthy state.
  6. The need for world peace overrides national and commercial interests.
  7. The poverty of two-thirds of the world’s family demands a redistribution of the world’s resources.
