The Green New Deal is the Greens' comprehensive response to the current economic, social and environmental crises. It aims to ensure prosperity and well-being for all, across the planet and generations, based on reducing inequalities within and between societies, and reconciling our lifestyles - the way we live, produce and consume - with the physical limits of our planet.
It consists of interlinked reforms at all levels, achieved by investments in: infrastructure and industrial policy (moving towards an environmental industrial revolution based on resource and energy-efficient processes, smart mobility, renewable energies, etc.), natural resources (promoting sustainable agriculture, ecosystem services, etc.), decent work and decent life, social inclusion to build strong communities, innovation and research, and education and training.
These investments must be complemented by fundamental changes at the macro-economic level (re-defining our measurement of economic progress, re-regulating the financial sector, etc.) and the development of fair fiscal policies at all relevant government levels to enable, encourage and accelerate this ecological and social transformation.
