The people's democracy

We have the riches we need to solve our social and environmental problems. Our problem is this wealth is concentrated in the hands of the powerful few. Mainstream politicians allow these people to block positive change for the common good to benefit themselves. Planning is distorted by political donations, that corrode public confidence, and leave Victorians to pay the bill for expensive roads that steal money from public transport. The Greens will stop corrosive political donations, and clear the way for tough laws on problem pokies, city planning in the interests of the public, and public transport that delivers for the community.

Environment and climate change

Without a resilient environment for us and future generations, life will be bleak. The other parties act as if the environment is an optional extra in public policy; we know it should be at the heart of everything we do. Without addressing climate change, life will increasingly be harsh, hot and frightening. The other parties act as if it can be put on the to do list for down the track. The Greens will stand up for ambitious, fit-for-the-future infrastructure and climate change policy, and create the Great Forest National Park to stop Labor’s logging in Victoria’s forests.

Keeping Melbourne liveable

The city we love is at its best when we all know we belong. Right now, though, housing costs are prohibitive, public transport is unreliable and crowded, powerful developers are distorting our neighbourhoods and public housing is under threat. The Andrews is letting powerful companies like Transurban dictate transport policy, while Victorians foot the bill. The Greens will champion large-scale housing programs and policies that prioritise secure, affordable homes over landlord profits. We’ll introduce minimum energy efficiency standards for rental properties and make sure your landlord can’t kick you out for no reason. We will oppose Labor’s plan to sell 80 per cent of our public housing land to private developers. We will invest in more trams, to ease overcrowding, intall high-speed signalling so we can run more trains more often, develop a bike plan with dollars attached, and install local electric vehicle charging stations.

Clean economy

A clean, fair economy is a powerful engine for a better life and a better state. But too often, our leaders act as if a dirty unfair economy, where people and the environment are raw materials for the benefit of the powerful few, is inevitable.

We can change that. As groundbreaking economist Kate Raworth puts it, ‘Humanity’s 21st century challenge is to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet’. This is the raison d’être of the Greens, at the heart of our social, environmental and economic policies.

FAIR SOCIETY

Fair societies do better. Inequality makes us sicker and sadder, fuels crime and corrodes trust in each other and in democracy. Greater equality makes us happier, healthier, safer and more secure.
