East Cambridgeshire Green Party is part of the Green Party of England and Wales. We believe in a caring, inclusive and democratic society that includes everyone, allowing them to do valuable work, follow their interests, interact with their community and enjoy nature.
Only the Greens have the courage to pursue responsible solutions to our social, economic and environmental crises through a commitment to fairness, citizen participation, shared responsibility, peace and environmental protection.
We will create jobs by making our homes and workplaces warm and energy-efficient; our public transport and local food networks reliable and convenient; and our energy sources affordable, renewable and resilient.
Work will pay at least a living wage - ensuring a good quality of life - with a citizen's pension providing dignified retirement. Tax contributions will match ability to pay.
We support high-quality public services run for people not private profit. We will protect the NHS from privatisation and return our energy, water and rail networks to public ownership. We will strengthen our education system by providing free school meals, making schools accountable to parents and abolishing tuition fees.
To protect and support our economy, we will separate retail and investment banks and empower communities with a network of not-for-profit lenders.
We will support cooperative, diverse and resilient local economies to meet our needs while reversing the status-seeking wealth concentration that is deepening social divisions and destroying the natural world. We will regulate, tax and invest to protect workers’ rights, support socially beneficial businesses and safeguard the ecosystems on which we rely.
Join us today and help to create the more beautiful world we know is possible.
