Scottish Greens 2024 General Election Manifesto at a glance

Essential things you need to know from the Scottish Greens manifesto launch in Edinburgh

This General Election the Scottish Greens are calling on people to vote like our future depends on it - because it does - and today we launched our 2024 manifesto explaining our transformational vision. 

Where can I read the manifesto for myself?

Right here. We have a dedicated webpage for the 2024 Scottish Green Manifesto including versions in Plain Text and Large Print. They are available as PDFs also to make life easier. 

It includes sections on tackling the climate emergency, an economy that works for people and planet, putting wellbeing and dignity at the heart of politics, upholding democracy in Scotland and playing a global role. 

I couldn't make it to the launch, what was said?

Co-leader Lorna Slater talked expertly about climate and investment in green jobs and technology and a redistribution of wealth in our society. 

New oil and gas licences and new fossil fuel investments are a fast-track to climate breakdown. They are incompatible with our climate commitments. Any Party or politician that tells you otherwise is, I’m afraid, simply denying basic climate science - Lorna Slater

Co-leader Patrick Harvie spoke passionately about inequality, and also World Refugee Day today.

The solution to stopping the death and suffering in the channel is not turning boats back, but providing a safe alternative. To set up safe routes for refugees around the globe, including coming to the UK. And once refugees are here, to process their claims in a fair and humane way and allow them the right to work - Patrick Harvie.
