86 different national Green Parties from all over the world are meeting in São Paulo, Brazil, for the 2008 Global Greens Congress, next month to discuss international strategic planning and build unity among Green office holders and Green Parties.
U.S. Greens know we're part of the only political alliance in the world today, whose values and global organization can possibly match the international scope of problems we confront.
In truth, Greens are the world's best hope for a survivable, sustainable and peaceful future. Greens in the U.S. are proud to be part of this powerful global movement.
• Globally, we aim to draw strategies to overcome the climate crisis, considering a post-Kyoto Protocol world and the sceneries that the Greens will have to face.
• We want to identify the actions directed to commercial trade between countries, considering the globalized economy, the international law and the development of technological alternatives, seeking joint initiatives that must be taken by Green Parties and Social-Environmental Movements.
• Nationally, regionally and locally, we expect to establish specific demands that, through Green politics, can be included in the agendas of our present and future governs.
The Global Greens seeks to:
* promote the Global Green Charter among the Green Parties of the world, as well as kindred groups and society at-large;
* stimulate and facilitate action on matters of global consequence; and
* deepen communication among Green Parties and Federations everywhere
