Forest of Dean Green Party

We are lucky to live in the Forest of Dean, one of the most beautiful and friendly of Britain, and a place that has changed so much from its industrial past. For that reason we are convinced that the Green Party should be the natural party for the Forest of Dean.

Aside from being a beautiful place to play and work, the Forest of Dean is a proud and friendly community of people who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. People of all politics worked together to save our Forests from privatisation. That campaign showed how much we all care for our environment and how, when we work together, we can protect the future for the Forest and make sure it is a healthy and sustainable place for our children and grandchildren.

What IS the Green Party about?

Green Party Political Programme & Our Local Manifesto

We have all become very aware of 'climate change' and the urgency of dealing with a potential catastrophe for our planet.

We are probably aware that Greens have been campaigning about this for decades. There have been entrenched commercial interests that have tried to resist change, and cloud the arguments - the 'climate change deniers'. As we get closer to the point of no return, and the reporting of the subject becomes more mainstream, the Green perspective and argument is seen to be vindicated.

We are also aware that Greens have been campaigning about animal welfare, and the protection of the natural environment for decades, indeed, the Green Party in the UK was once called the 'Ecology Party'.

This knowledge may leave us with  the impression that the Green Party is something of a 'single-issue' party. A pressure group campaigning on behalf of animals, nature, the environment, and the planet. This would be honourable enough, but it represents a misguided idea about what the Green Party is about.

The problems of environmental degradation have a fundamental root cause, and that is that we have developed a society that tries to operate in a way that goes against the grain of nature. Not only does it go against the grain of nature, but it goes against the grain of humanity as well.

The problems of people in our society and the problems that we inflict on the natural environment all stem from the same root cause.

So the Green Party has interests and solutions that are much wider than the most widely publicised campaigning on nature and the environment.

  • Save the Environment
  • Green our Land
  • Protect our Animals
  • Challenge Privilege
  • End Discrimination
  • Champion International Friendships
  • Liberate our Working Lives
  • Unleash our Creative Power
  • Embed Collective Kindness in our Society
  • Deliver Quality of Life for All
