    Come and support the Victorian Greens Ballarat and District branch.

     

    Reflecting an awareness of the interrelatedness of all ecological, social and economic processes, the principles of the Australian Greens are:

    Ecology:
    1. to ensure that human activity respects the integrity of ecosystems and does not impair bio-diversity and the ecological resilience of life supporting systems;
    2. to encourage the development of a consciousness that respects the value of life.

    Democracy:
    1. to increase opportunities for public participation in political, social and economic decision-making;
    2. to break down inequalities of wealth and power which inhibit participatory democracy.

    Social Justice:
    1. to eradicate poverty by developing initiatives that address the causes as well as the symptoms of poverty;
    2. to provide affirmative action to eliminate discrimination based on gender, age, race, ethnicity, class, religion, disability, sexuality or membership of a minority group;
    3. to introduce measures that redress the imbalance between rich and poor.

    Peace:
    1. to adopt and promote non-violent resolution of conflict;
    2. to develop an independent, non-aligned foreign policy;
    3. to develop a self-reliant, defensive, non-nuclear policy.

    An Ecologically Sustainable Economy:
    1. to develop economic policies which will ensure greater resource and energy efficiency, as well as development and use of environmentally sustainable technologies.

    Culture:
    1. to respect and protect ethnic, religious and racial diversity;
    2. to recognise the cultural requirements of the original Australians;
    3. to assist in ensuring the achievement of Aboriginal land rights and self-determination.

    Global Responsibility:
    To promote equity between nations and people by:
    1. facilitating fair trading relationships;
    2. providing for increased development assistance and concerted action to abolish Third World debt;
    3. providing increased green technology transfer and skills to developing countries;
    4. opposing human rights abuses and political oppression;
    5. ensuring that Australia plays an active role in promoting peace and ecological sustainability.

    Long Range Future Focus:
    1. to avoid action which might risk long-term or irreversible damage to the environment.
    2. to safeguard the planet's ecological resources on behalf of future generations.
    3. to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources and ensure sustainable use of renewable resources;
    4. to adopt more comprehensive social, environmental and technology assessment practices;
    5. to facilitate socially and ecologically responsible investment.

    Meaningful Work:
    1. to encourage, develop and assist work that is safe, fairly-paid, socially useful, personally fulfilling and not harmful to the environment;
    2. to encourage and facilitate more flexible work arrangements, on-going education, training and social welfare so that more people can engage in meaningful work.

    Information:
    1. to facilitate a free flow of information between citizens and all tiers of government;
    2. to ensure that Australians have the benefit of a locally responsible, diverse, democratically controlled, independent mass media.
