Over the past centuries, we have irreversibly changed the delicate balance of our planet by living beyond our ecological means. Today many of the earth’s resources are scarce – clean water, fresh air, our mineral resources.
Communities are being devastated by mining and logging, and species are becoming critically endangered due to hunting and deforestation. We also face the threats of climate change and are already seeing its impact.
For Greens, the well-being of the economy and the environment go hand-in-hand. We believe that our best chance of building lasting, decent employment prospects for future generations is to create jobs that are consistent with sustainable development.
