The Green Party is not just concerned about what people usually mean by the environment. We believe passionately in social justice, as well as preserving and protecting the environment from damage, fracture and exploitation. We understand that policies in apparently different spheres are interlinked and have an effect on each other. For Greens, 'the environment' has a wider meaning: it means our personal and social environment, just as much as the physical environment. So for example, health is concerned with our internal and personal environment, economy and education with our social environment, whilst homes, food and transport encompass both. Our environment affects us, but we also recognise that what we do and how we live affects the environment. Over the years, we've developed a set of policies which fit together in this way, as parts of a united whole.
The Green Party's Manifesto for a Fairer Bristol can be seen here. This was unveiled by Councillor Daniella Radice, the Green Party candidate in 2012 for Bristol's Mayor.
We have also developed a 9 Point Plan for Bristol to summarise our ideas.
And at the European level we have a common manifesto with other Greens
