WHO WE ARE

As a nationwide political party, the Greens are concerned with many large scale global issues, such as climate change, poverty, justice, and sound economic management. Many of these issues are immediately relevant here in our local region as well.

We work with the community so together we have a more caring society, a healthier environment, and a cleaner economy.

FEDERAL MP PORTFOLIOS

The 47th Parliament has seen an unprecedented number of Greens MPs being elected to the federal parliament. The Leader of the Greens, Adam Bandt described it as a "greenslide". Their portfolios are available here.

DID YOU KNOW…?

The Greens don’t receive any funding from any corporations or lobbyists, so the nominal membership fees go a long way to the administration of the party.

The Central Coast Greens need your help and support. We have so much to do, but we’re a small organisation standing against two monolithic parties. Whatever you contribute will be greatly appreciated.

Your help is most appreciated, as we are trying to keep politics honest and put citizens’ interests first for the Central Coast, for Australia, and for the wider world.
