Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Green politics is a kind of politics that has been on the rise since the 1970s. The parties and movements that follow these ideas are usually called green:

  • The most important idea is that whatever is done has an impact on ecology. The environment needs to be protected; technologies and means of production should therefore be sustainable and protect the environment.
  • Environment politics must take into account the needs of the people. The ideas about social politics are mostly left-wing and support social justice.
  • Many of these movements advocate greater democracy, oppose centralism and advocate grassroots democracy. If action is taken, it needs the support of most of the people.
  • Advocacy for non-violence.

Greens have been most successful in Germany.
