South Cambridgeshire is a great place to live, but keeping it that way is a big challenge. From East West Rail to cuts in local services, a host of issues need addressing if we are to strike the right balance between prosperity and preserving our environment for future generations. A vote for the Green Party in the county council elections is a vote to find practical, sustainable ways to make life in our area greener, fairer and better for everyone.

A Green Recovery: making a better, fairer world after the pandemic 

The coronavirus crisis has caused huge economic, social and emotional damage in our area and for the rest of the planet. But it has also brought out the best in our communities. It has shown that we can do things differently and work together to create a brighter future. The Green Party is leading the debate by seeking new solutions to 21st century problems. Solutions that will allow humanity to thrive by working with, rather than against, the natural world.

  • We are pressing for urgent action to tackle climate change, not in isolation, but as part of a joined up, cost effective plan.
  • We passionately believe long-term prosperity and sustainability depend on a new era of Green jobs, industries and education
  • We insist that properly-funded public services, staffed by key workers earning a fair wage, are central to creating a more just and equal society
  • We seek to empower local communities to shape their environment, through more input in planning and housing policy and through access to schemes that preserve and renew resources
  • We want present and future generations to enjoy recreation and the sense of wellbeing that comes from living in harmony with nature.
