Greens for a Better Europe is the Green Party campaign for a Remain vote in the EU referendum.
On June 23rd every one of us has an equal vote in the referendum, and an equal chance to have a say in the future of our country.
The Green Party wants Britain to remain a part of the EU because we believe that we flourish when we work together on the shared challenges we face.
Five green reasons to remain in the EU
Environment and Health Our beaches and rivers are cleaner, our air less polluted, and our children better protected from toxic chemicals thanks to EU rules. Our wildlife is safer. The EU has championed global action on climate change and renewable energy.
Jobs and Employment Rights Paid holidays, maternity rights, and fair treatment for temps, agency and part-time workers come from our EU membership. Over 3 million jobs are linked to trade with other EU countries.
Controlling Big Business With corporations operating across borders we need international rules to keep them in check - on wage levers, working conditions, and environmental standards. EU rules are helping to close tax loopholes and clamp down on tax dodging.
Freedom of Movement As EU citizens, we are free to study, work, travel and retire anywhere across Europe. Freedom of movement enriches our lives, culture and opportunities.
Peace and Security The EU has secured lasting peace in Europe after the bloodshed of the Second World War, and has a vital role in spreading democracy and human rights throughout the world.
