Politics

Our cornerstone is ambitious environmental politics. Best legacy to our children, is clean and well-being nature.
Needs of a growing city are sometimes challenging nature’s values – we aim to protect our clean ground water, soils, swamps and groves. We want to preserve diversity and aim our city into carbon neutrality.

All build environment must be accesible, regardless of ones degree of mobility. Same applies to the entire society. Nobody should be excluded. We want to build an equal society in which everyone can participate.

Greens cherish diverse field of culture in our city as an hobby or even as profession. Let’s seek rich experiences from culture – not from shopping.

People should be heard more when decisions are made, also in between elections. Open discussion and dialogue about city’s future should impact us all.
