To win a Green New Deal, we need to make it an era-defining issue. To do this we will:
- Disrupt the political system
- Force politicians to choose a side
- Reach out into our communities
- Elect inspiring green new deal champions
disrupt the political system, force politicians to choose a side
As young people we will cause widespread disruption to the political system until politicians face up to the scale of the climate crisis. We give them nowhere to hide. We force them to choose a side. We challenge them everywhere, grab headlines and attract more young people to our movement.
reach out into our communities, elect green new deal champions
At the same time we go out into our communities and talk to everybody we can about the Green New Deal. We know there is already huge demand for big, bold action on the climate crisis. We just need to turn that demand into a huge majority for the Green New Deal.
As we grow and the next election nears, we’ll set our sights on political power. We’ll elect inspiring Green New Deal champions from our movement and take down the climate delaying politicians who are destroying our planet.
These two things together – widespread disruption and community outreach – are how we’ll win. They’ve been so important to movements in the past. They’re our secret to making the Green New Deal an era defining issue.
our plan and ambition matches the scale of the crisis
This isn’t about persuading individual politicians or parties. It’s about reshaping the entire political debate. It’s about causing so much disruption we can’t be ignored. It’s about getting political leaders to take action at the speed and scale necessary. It’s about winning a society wide realignment around the Green New Deal.
This is a decade long fight and we’re only just getting started.
The only way we’ll win is by building a powerful movement of young people willing to do what it takes. We’re fighting for our lives. Now is the moment to join us.
We don’t have any time to waste – climate breakdown is already here and our communities are already struggling. So let’s get started:
2021: Grab headlines and cause widespread disruption to the political system
2022: Reach out into our communities and win support
2023: Build political power and raise up Green New Deal champions
2024: Make it a Green New Deal election
Our goals for 2024:
align the political system around a green new deal.
By challenging politicians and forcing them to choose a side we’ll cause widespread disruption to the political system and get the Green New Deal on the agenda. This will put pressure on opposition parties – who all claim to represent young people – to choose a side and adopt the Green New Deal. In turn this will open up space between those parties and the Government – exposing them for being a government of climate delay and realigning the political system around the issue of a Green New Deal.
win a huge majority for the green new deal
We know there is already huge demand for big, bold action on the climate crisis. We just need to turn that demand into a huge majority for the Green New Deal. By using our identities as young people fighting for our future we will break into the headlines and win sympathy from the public. By going into our communities and talking to everybody we’ll raise awareness and win support for the Green New Deal.
make the green new deal an era-defining issue
Public support for the Green New Deal doesn’t matter unless it’s an election defining issue that people vote on. Through our two tactics – widespread disruption of the political system and reaching out into our communities – we’ll ensure the Green New Deal is a red hot political issue that defines the narrative at the next election and beyond.
We can’t do this without you.
