The Greens have a positive vision — a vision that puts the community first. We listen to the community and we represent the community. We are not a party for big business and vested interests. We believe in a Canberra where everyone matters, where we care for each other. A Canberra that takes real action on climate change — and builds new jobs and new industries in renewable energy. A Canberra that's admired for being prosperous and fair. A Canberra where the community comes first.
In my first speech in Parliament, I told my Parliamentary colleagues, “we can choose to squander our time here and aim for power above all else, or we can use it to get things done”. This week – together with communities across Victoria – we got something done.
