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.
The Forest community has a proud history of ACTION...act for your community now...act for the CLIMATE EMERGENCY... Join the Green Party in the Forest of Dean today.
The Green Party has six hard working District Councillors making a real difference in the Forest of Dean, both in their wards and district wide.
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.
