How we win
The Green New Deal is a big and ambitious government plan: we know winning it won’t be easy. But history shows that with two key ingredients, we can achieve big and ambitious things.
To win a Green New Deal we need:
- People power: a large, diverse, vocal and active base of public support
- Political power: a critical mass of supportive politicians.
We’re not blind to political realities: we know that winning a Green New Deal will be harder under a hostile government. But we don’t have time to wait around. By focusing on building a powerful base of support, we set the stage for the Green New Deal to be won as quickly as possible.
Here’s how we’ll do it:
- Build a network of local Green New Deal Hubs in every town and city that win community support and put pressure on our political representatives
- Come together for actions that spread our message and demonstrate the scale of our support
- Tell a powerful story that brings the Green New Deal to life and inspires people to action
- Build pressure in parliament by lobbying politicians and fighting for policies that lay the groundwork for the Green New Deal.
The work of the movement
At the core of our plan is the work of local Hubs. Working at a local level is our best chance to grow the movement and build community support for the Green New Deal. It’s also the easiest way to get people involved in our movement.
What Hubs do:
- Grow awareness and support for the Green New Deal with community outreach, actions and events
- Tell the story of the Green New Deal with creative content and media interventions
- Widen the movement by building partnerships and alliances with other local groups and organisations
- Support local fights that build towards the Green New Deal – like campaigns on jobs, housing and public transport
- Push local political representatives like MPs and councillors to champion the Green New Deal.
