Ten Key Values

The Green Party of the United States and the various State Green Parties in the U.S. have adopted a list of ten Key Values that embody both the Green Party political goals and the methods Greens use to further these values.

This list of the Illinois Green Party 10 Key Values includes the original Four Pillars of Ecological Wisdom, Social Justice, Grassroots Democracy, and Nonviolence, shared by Green Parties all over the world. It also contains the 6 additional Key Values found in the Green Party of the United States’ list, as ratified at the Green Party Convention held in Denver, CO, in 2000.

These Key Values reflect our hopes and our purpose in coming together as the Illinois Green Party. The Values speak for themselves. As Party members, we will speak and act for the Values!


1. Ecological Wisdom
  The Greens recognize that the Earth sustains all life processes. Green ecology moves beyond environmentalism by understanding the common roots of the abuse of people. Whatever we do to the web of life, we do to ourselves.
   
2. Social Justice
  Greens want to replace the worldwide system of poverty and injustice with a world free of all oppression based on class, gender, race, citizenship, age, or sexual orientation.
   
3. Grassroots Democracy
  The powerless suffer the most from resource depletion and toxic pollution. Greens believe in direct participation by all people in the environmental, political, and economic decisions that affect their lives.
   
4. Nonviolence
  Greens reject violence as a way of settling disputes – it is shortsighted, morally wrong, and ultimately self-defeating. We are working to create a world where war is obsolete.
   
5. Decentralization
  Power and responsibility must be restored to local communities within an overall framework of ecologically sound and socially just values and lifestyles.
   
6. Community-Based Economics
  Greens seek a new economics that is based upon the natural limits of the Earth, and which meets the basic needs of everyone on the planet, under democratic, localized community control.
   
7. Feminism
  The Green movement is profoundly inspired by feminist values. The ethics of cooperation and understanding must replace the values of domination and control over others.
   
8. Respect for Diversity
  Greens honor the biological diversity of the Earth and the cultural, sexual, and spiritual diversity of Earth's people. We aim to reclaim this country's finest ideals: popular democracy, the dignity of the individual, and liberty and justice for all.
   
9. Personal and Global Responsibility
  Greens demonstrate a commitment to global sustainability and international justice through political solidarity and in personal lifestyles based on self-sufficiency and living lightly.
   
10. Future Focus
  Like the Iroquois, Greens seek a society where the interests of the seventh generation are considered equal to the interests of the present. We must reclaim the future for our children and ourselves.
