For the first time in history over half the world lives in cities, and there is no better city to start changing the world than London.
We have a rich history of change and invention and our eight million people are bursting with ideas to solve our problems. This Green Party manifesto sets out plans for the Mayor and Assembly that build on these ideas.
Greens put fairness at the heart of all our policies: building more homes with co-operatives and smaller companies not big developers, funding experts to help communities defend their estates and helping private tenants with rent controls and a renters’ union so they can organise and stand together.
We will create better jobs by supporting new, green and small businesses and make sure more workers win fair wages. We will save lives and set an example to the world by cleaning up our air and creating a network of better green spaces, and by reducing our waste and impact on climate change.
We will make London a better place to live by reducing traffic, improving public transport and helping people walk and cycle on safe streets to nearby shops and services. We will restore trust in the police by working with citizens to rethink their priorities, and we will work to protect London’s health services from privatisation and cuts.
Above all we will make sure City Hall listens to Londoners and involves them more directly in the decisions that affect our city.
The new Mayor and Assembly elected in 2016 must take the first important steps towards a better future for all our people. We can do that, and build on sixteen years of effective work by Green Assembly Members in City Hall, if you help elect more Greens on 5th May.
