The Scottish Green Party campaigns on a wide range of issues, including those listed below. Some of our campaigns are led from within the Scottish Parliament, some through local government, and others by Greens working in communities across Scotland. Find out more about our current campaigns below.
Cut your bills - insulate every home
Everyone deserves a warm home and affordable fuel bills, but fuel poverty is on the rise. £100m a year over ten years would insulate every home in Scotland for free, while also boosting jobs and tackling climate change.
Scotland's housing stock is poorly insulated and inefficiently heated, and fuel bills are too high, especially for those on low incomes. Wasted energy also means more climate-busting pollution. Properly insulating all Scotland's homes would be the cheapest and most efficient way to tackle all these problems at the same time.Read more
Forth Road Bridge
The Scottish Green Party is currently the only Parliamentary party arguing for the existing Forth Road Bridge to be repaired, rather than building a new bridge for a starting price of £2,300m. The cables on the Forth Road Bridge have been deteriorating. They are now being dried out, and information expected next year will establish how successful that has been. Even if this measure does not work, installing a new cable would cost a maximum of £122m, a small fraction of the cost.Read more
The Scottish Greens campaigned against Donald Trump's plans for a leisure resort and two golf courses at Menie in Aberdeenshire while politicians from other parties cosied up to him.
The development is an affront to democracy and the environment.
Mr Trump is also using his bullying tactics in an attempt to steer Scotland's energy policy.Read more
North Kelvin Meadow
The Scottish Green Party supports the North Kelvin Meadow Campaign, a community group set up to turn the disused green space between Clouston Street and Kelbourne Street into a multi-use community green space for the people of Maryhill. A planning application has been lodged to build 90 flats on the Meadows, and Patrick Harvie will be registering his objections. Please lend your voice to the campaign too!Read more

Fairer taxes - invest in public services
The Scottish Greens reject the idea that there are no alternatives to ideological cuts to the public sector, cuts that threaten jobs and the services we all rely on. The Greens will back a fairer system of taxation, where the better off pay more, those on lowest incomes pay less, and big business pays its fair share. This change is essential to enable Scotland to invest in decent public services and retain jobs and services.Read more
Make Coal Extinct!
The Scottish Government are supporting a new coal-fired power station at Hunterston despite local objections and environmental concerns. The Scottish Greens are working with local campaigners to block this project and support a clean energy revolution.Read more
No fees - keep tuition free
Education benefits us all, not just students. Places must be based on the ability to learn, not to pay. Greens pledge to vote to block any moves to bring fees back to Scotland.Read more
