Green New Deal Rising

Youth climate movement striving for a radical transformation of our climate and economy for a greener, fairer future


The Green New Deal (GND) is a ten year, game–changing plan to stop climate change and build a world in which we can thrive. We are at a decisive moment in our history. We’ve been following one way for decades, guided by rules written by people who do not have our interests at heart. But now we are rising up to win a world where we protect and build the things people really care about. These changes will look different in different places, but will all move us towards these 5 goals:
1. Decarbonise, fast – ending our dependence on dirty fuels, and build an economy based on 100% clean energy
2. Jobs and a just transition – creating millions of new well-paid, unionised, secure, and future-proof jobs for anyone who needs one, and guarantee a decent livelihood for anyone currently working in high emission sectors
3. Transform the economy – transforming our economy so the financial system serves the needs of people and the planet, and so that our government is accountable to people, not corporations
4. Protect and restore – protect and restore vital habitats and carbon sinks, including forests and wild areas, ensure nature friendly food production, and ensure the provision of clean water, air, green spaces and a healthy environment for all
5. Promote global justice – Do our part to help the rest of the world build fair, clean and healthy economies, accounting for the UK’s historic and ongoing role in exploiting communities and resources across the world
Green New Deal Rising (GNDR) are an intersectional, UK-wide campaign, led by 18-35 year olds, fighting to win a GND.
To make the GND an era-defining issue, we will:
– Disrupt the political system
– Force politicians to choose a side
– Reach out into our communities
– Elect inspiring GND champions
We have an energised Sheffield local group, a collaboration all who live, work, or study in Sheffield. Through GNDR’s ‘Street-by-street’, and ‘Labour: Be Bold’ campaigns, we’ll be striving to put the GND on the agenda in the lead up to the next General Election, seeking radical change nationally – but also here in Sheffield.
Interesting helping us change everything?
