Introduction

Claiming to be the "fastest growing, world-wide movement seen in the second half of the 20th Century," and while emphasizing the still-evolving nature of the green movement and its political tenants, the Green Party calls for restructuring social, cultural and political life, particularly in developed countries. This movement is very much a local, grassroots effort, with little solid agreement on agendas, other than standing for peace, social justice and the environment.
