The Green Party believes in building towards a more democratic, cooperative, cleaner, safer world where people, not corporations, make the decisions that affect our lives.They believe every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives; no one should be subject to the will of another. Green Party members work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them. They also work to create new types of political organizations that expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in the decision-making process.Party members put forth that human societies must operate with the understanding that people are part of nature, not separate from nature and humans must maintain an ecological balance and live within the ecological and resource limits of our communities and the planet. They support a sustainable society that utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will benefit and not suffer from the practices of our generation. To this end the Green Party believes we must have agricultural practices that replenish the soil; move to an energy efficient economy; and live in ways that respect the integrity of natural systems.
