The Green New Deal Explained

The Green New Deal is a radical vision for transforming our economy rooted in the recognition that climate change is fundamentally a class issue, and a product of our broken economic system. It is a plan that recognises that economic, social and climate justice are indissoluble. That’s why our Motion goes beyond just the demand for rapid decarbonisation.

The Green New Deal calls for 9 concrete, radical changes to our current economic, social and political model. But the Green New Deal is more than just a series of demands.

The following documents lay out the justification for each element of the Green New Deal and, crucially, why each one is an equally essential pillar of a transformative plan for tackling the climate crisis by building a prosperous, socialist, and zero-carbon society.
