The Greens have the four pillars and policies that we adhere to and will stand up for. The four pillars are ecological sustainability, peace and disarmament, economic justice and grassroots democracy. A Greens Councillor will always act within this framework.
Other Councillors may change their position half-way through a term on local council. Greens Councillors determine their position in consultation with their local group before acting, and act from a collective position, not an individual one.
The Greens commitment to participatory democracy means Greens Councillors view our role as enabling the community to participate in decision making, rather than paternalistically making decisions for the community.
All Greens Councillors are offered training by the Greens NSW from experienced Councillors and other professionals. Our training teaches councillors how to obtain independent advice, how to maintain high standards of decision making, avoid conflicts of interest, and how to seek further information. We have shared resources on complex issues of planning and local government meeting procedure.
