The Green New Deal
The Green New Deal is a practical plan for tackling the interlinked crises of inequality and climate breakdown.
In the UK right now, most people are finding it harder and harder to meet their basic needs, while a tiny few profit from exploitation of our labour and the natural world. An economic system geared towards private profit is tearing our society apart and driving climate breakdown.
The Green New Deal will invest to rebuild our society on principles of social and environmental justice, redirecting money away from polluting activities and into public services and climate action.
We all have a part to play in building an economy that serves need, not greed.

Meeting since early 2007, the membership of the Green New Deal Group is drawn to reflect a wide range of expertise relating to economics and politics, and the climate, nature and inequality crises. The views and recommendations of the Green New Deal Group set out in a series of reports starting in 2008, are those of the group writing in their individual capacities.
