Support the Green Party for a better future
Welcome to Christine Milne
We are a platform committed to supporting the Green Party for a better future for all Australians.
The Australian Greens is a confederation of eight territory and state parties that emerged from the Australian environmental movement of the 1970s and 1980s. It started with the campaign to save Lake Pedder which led to the formation of the first green party in the world – the United Tasmania Group in 1972.
Since then, the green movement has continued to wax stronger in Australia, leading to the formation of the Federation of Green political parties from all the eight states and territories in 1992. Today, The Australian Greens is the third-largest political party in Australia in terms of votes.
The Greens are concerned about the environment and related problems faced by Australians today. The party focuses on finding solutions that are based on evidence to all the problems faced by Australians today, which include economic inequality, environmental destruction, climate change, and rise in the cost of living.
The Australian Greens is a confederation of Green parties in eight territories and states. They are;
- Australian Capital Territory Greens
- Greens New South Wales
- Northern Territory Greens
- Queensland Greens
- South Australia Greens
- Tasmanian Greens
- Victorian Greens
- Western Australia Greens
The core values of the Australian Greens are as follows;
- Ecological Sustainability
- Grassroots Democracy
- Social Justice
- Peace and Non-Violence
Australian Greens believe that sustainable agriculture is necessary to achieve food security, mitigate and adapt to climate change, and environmental sustainability.
Australian Greens believe that human activities affect animals negatively in many ways, resulting in cruelty, mistreatment, neglect, etc. thus, the party is committed to bringing an end to this suffering.
Arts and Culture
Australian Greens believe cultural and artistic engagement and expression are a basic part of social wellbeing.
Banking and Finance
Australian Greens believe the banking sector in Australia is one of the most concentrated worldwide and require the intervention of the government to make sure it does not affect the customers, taxpayers, or community negatively.
Australian Greens believe that in order to maintain the life support systems of the Earth, it is necessary to protect the biodiversity, ecosystems, and ecosystem process.
Children and Young People
Australian Greens believe all young people and children have an immutable and universal right to safety, agency, bodily autonomy, education, privacy, housing, physical and mental healthcare, social support, and sustainable environment. These are inherent rights that must be recognised and promoted in all settings.
Climate Change and Energy
Australian Greens believe that climate change remains a threat to human societies, biodiversity, and ecosystems, leading to disruptions and it represents an opportunity to change Australia dependence on greenhouse gas to one employing cleaner energy sources.
Constitutional Reform and Democracy
Australian Greens believe the parliament should best serve the interest of the masses and not those who have the money to purchase influence.
