Calderdale Green Party

Please volunteer to help us and sign up to come to our events.

What we are for

We invite you to join us in working for justice, equality and protection of the natural resources that sustain us, to turn Calderdale into a fairer, greener place to live and work.

We will achieve this by working for:

  • a fair shares economy
  • a safe climate and environment
  • a properly funded, publicly owned, run and provided NHS and other public services

Working together for a fairer, greener future

Calderdale Green Party is one of the local parties within the Green Party of England and Wales. We aim to work for a just, equitable and sustainable community in Calderdale. We focus our efforts through the electoral system, and through direct action and campaigns outside the formal political system.

Ready for a Change - There is an alternative

Nationally, the Green Party’s priorities are as follows:

• We’re focussed on stopping climate change, preserving the world as we know it for our children and grandchildren;

• We’re at the forefront of calls for a People’s Vote with the option to remain in the EU. It’s through our membership of the EU that we have the best chance of ensuring our standard of living and overall way of life is preserved;

• We believe in a more equal Britain – we support the introduction of Universal Basic Income, and the abolition of National Insurance tax for employers and employees, with replacement taxes focussed on wealth and pollution.

Real Progress at Meetings
