Local and National Policy
Our national policies are decided at Green Party Conference which every member is entitled to attend and vote at. You can find them in Policies For a Sustainable Society which represent our long term vision. It would not be possible to implement all these policies in one 5 year spell in Government, so at each General Election we publish a fully costed manifesto of what we would aim to do if elected. The 2015 General Election mini manifesto is here and the fully costed 2015 manifesto is here.
In Sheffield, we are part of the decentralised national Green Party and aim to create a just, equitable and sustainable local community throughout the City. We focus our efforts primarily, though not exclusively, through the electoral system. If you want to learn more, then take a visit to the about us pages.
National and European Policies
A good summary of our national policies can be found here. Policies For a Sustainable Society contains all the policies agreed at successive Green Party conferences. These are our detailed policies which are elucidated and illustrated from time to time in news releases, topical comment, reports etc. If you are a member and would like to add to or alter any of our policies the first step is to get involved with the policy group. (you will need to sign in to the national members site to find this link). You may find there is already a group working on updating or discussing the policy you are interested in changing. You could also bring your ideas to a local Green Party meeting for discussion and advice on how to proceed.
Our manifesto for the 2014 European Election is here. and it is summarised in a much more readable mini manifesto here.
