We believe that Scotland can unlock the power that our communities need, in jobs, health and the economy.

We believe that the Scottish Parliament can be so much bolder in meeting the ambitions of the people of Scotland. 

The Scottish Greens have the people and the policies to make that happen. Our candidates have a solid track record of making a difference inside and outside Parliament.  

We bring fresh, new, bold ideas to Parliament. We will work constructively with others who share our aims. Parliament - and Scotland - needs a diverse politics and progressive champions to hold the biggest parties to account.

  • Scotland can create over 200,000 new jobs

    With more Green MSPs we can deliver 204,000* jobs in clean, green industries; and we can help small businesses, social enterprises, and employee-owned ventures to flourish

  • Scotland can provide good homes for all

    With more Green MSPs we can eradicate fuel poverty; raise standards in private housing; and make private rents affordable

  • Scotland can unlock the power in our communities

    We can achieve real change in who owns Scotland. We’ll increase support for community and public ownership of energy and give communities the same rights as developers

  • Scotland can ban fracking once and for all

    The scientific evidence is compelling that fracking and UGE are too dangerous and that it’s unnecessary and distracts from renewables investment. Communities are up in arms and whilst  the SNP continue to defer a decision the Greens are the only party calling for an all out ban, which can be achieved using the powers already devolved to Holyrood.

    We can ensure that Scotland uses its powers in planning to ensure that unconventional gas extraction does not take place beside our homes, our shores and vital agricultural assets.

  • Scotland can care for all our people

    We can fight for a ‘Carers Wage’ which values people who care for young and old, and we can welcome people fleeing conflict abroad.

  • Scotland can guarantee a future for our young people

    We can open up college places and apprenticeships , and we can commit to a job, training or education for every school-leaver through a Scotland Guarantee
