The European Green Party is a European political party that is also known as the European Greens.
We bring together national parties that share the same Green values, and who are active across the entire European continent – both within the European Union and beyond.
We’re striving for a Green transformation of Europe and its economy, that will bring about a progressive and sustainable future for all its citizens.
As mentioned in the EU Treaties, our job is to “contribute to forming European awareness and to express the political will of the citizens of the European Union.”
The European Green Party works very closely with the Greens-EFA group in the European Parliament. As a Europarty, it is the European Greens and its national Member Parties that run and contest the European elections. Once the elections are over, the elected Green candidates take up a seat in the Greens-EFA group as Members of the European Parliament.
Among other things, our positions focus on strengthening human rights, tackling climate change, creating good jobs, empowering young people and building a strong, democratic Europe.
