The Greens/EFA in the European Parliament set up a dedicated working group to develop Green New Deal policies. Transversal by nature, the Green New Deal covers many domains covered in the European Parliament, including climate and energy policy, industrial policy, economic policy, employment policy, social policy and mobility policy.
Green MEPs with seats on different Parliamentary Committees are working hard to make the Green New Deal a reality by building strategies and forging alliances with a wide range of stakeholders, like civil society organisations, trade unions, entrepreneurs and sustainable businesses. We are also actively lobbying for the inclusion of Green New Deal objectives and policies in EU legislation and decisions taken by the European Parliament.
At the same time, we draft policy papers, commission major studies and organise workshops and conferences with experts, stakeholders, citizens and Greens from across Europe.
The European Green Party (EGP) is a transnational political party having as its members Green parties from European countries. The Green New Deal has been the EGP’s main message already in the European Parliament elections’ campaign in 2009. Since then, it has been working on developing common Green positions on various aspects of the Green New Deal, from the employment and social dimensions, to the agriculture, industry and economic and financial aspects of the Green New Deal.
Given its mission to Europeanise debates inside and outside the Green political family, the Green European Foundation (GEF) has been involved in publishing and disseminating studies on the Green New Deal, as well as in arranging events around Europe on connected issues. GEF has been running this website, updating it with content on a regular basis since its launch back in 2010.
This website, a joint project of the Greens/EFA in the European Parliament, the Green European Foundation (GEF) and the European Green Party, is the main platform providing information about the Green New Deal in Europe, including successes across Europe and in the European Parliament.
