Short Version: Green Parties around the world share common values as expressed in the Charter of the Global Greens. The policies of the Green Party of Canada are based on six fundamental principles:
1) Ecological Wisdom – We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific values of all forms of life, including non-human species.
2) Non-Violence – We declare our commitment to non-violence and strive for a culture of peace and cooperation between states, inside societies and between individuals, as the basis of global security.
3) Social Justice – We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of social and natural resources, both locally and globally, to meet basic human needs unconditionally, and to ensure that all citizens have full opportunities for personal and social development.
4) Sustainability – We recognize the limited scope for the material expansion of human society within the biosphere, and the need to maintain biodiversity through the sustainable use of renewable resources and the responsible use of non-renewable resources.
5) Participatory Democracy – We strive for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in the environmental, economic, social and political decisions which affect their lives; so that power and responsibility are concentrated in local and regional communities, and devolved only where essential to higher tiers of governance.
6) Respect for Diversity – We honour and value equally the Earth’s biological and ecological diversity together with the cultural, linguistic, ethnic, sexual, religious and spiritual diversity within the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.
