Global Greens

The Australian Greens are a founding member of the Global Greens, a global partnership of the world’s Green parties and political movements, working cooperatively to implement the Global Greens Charter.

The first section of the charter sets out the principles that bind together Greens from around the world: ecological wisdom, social justice, participatory democracy, nonviolence, sustainability and respect for diversity.  The second section is a 'political action' plan covering some of the most pressing problems facing the world. This section was reviewed and updated at the Dakar 2012 Global Greens Congress in Senegal. 

To date there have been four Global Greens Congresses, with the first being held in Canberra, Australia in 2001, the second in Sao Paolo, Brazil in 2008, the third in Dakar, Senegal in 2012.  The fourth Global Greens Congress was held in Liverpool, UK in April/May 2017.

In total there are around 90 members of the Global Greens, split across four federations

Political Parties for Democracy

We help to support the development of new and emerging green parties in the Asia-Pacific region through a variety of mechanisms, one of which is the Australian Political Parties for Democracy Program (APPDP).

The Australian Political Parties for Democracy Program (APPDP) was established by the Federal Government in 2005. Its purpose is to fund major political parties to further the development of political party systems in partner countries.

The Australian Greens were added to this program in 2010 and currently receive an annual budget of $200,000 for three year funding periods. The program is administered by the party’s International Development Committee (AG-IDC) in order to assist Greens parties and organisations, principally in developing countries, to develop their capacity to participate in democratic political processes.
