Green New Deal UK is a non-profit organisation formed in 2019 by organisers who are committed to social, economic and climate justice. We are a small staff team working closely with a number of partners and an army of dedicated volunteers.
Green New Deal Rising was launched in August 2021 as a movement of young people across the country – our aim is to disrupt the political system until politicians have no choice but to act.
