The Green New Deal (GND) is a comprehensive response to the current economic, social and environmental crises. It integrates macro-economic reforms with a social inclusiveness agenda and a green industrial policy, from the local to the international level. Doing so, it paves the way of a transformation of our development model so that in can ultimately ensure prosperity and well-being for all, across the planet and generations, reducing inequalities within and between societies, and reconciling our lifestyles - the way we live, produce and consume - with the physical limits of our planet.
The Green New Deal is more than just another “eco-friendly” policy - it’s a plan for a rethink of priorities in addressing the way we live and work. Therefore the Green New Deal proposes a comprehensive, economic, social and environmental transformation, from infrastructure and sustainable industrial policies to investment in peoples’ wellbeing and redistribution of wealth.
