Principles

The Green Party of Alberta is committed to the 6 principles of the world-wide Green Party movement:

Ecological wisdom

Human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific value of all forms of life.

Non-violence

We are committed to non-violence and cooperation between states, inside societies and between individuals.

Participatory democracy

In a healthy democracy 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.

Respect for diversity

We honour all forms of diversity – for example, racial, linguistic, ethnic, sexual, religious and spiritual – within the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.

Social justice

The key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development.

Sustainability

We recognize the limited scope for the material expansion of society within the biosphere and the need to maintain biodiversity through the sustainable use of renewable resources.
