The future for Australia can still be a prosperous one if we build our economy on green principles rather than short-term self-interest
The Greens involve members in key decisions and our campaigns are powered by thousands of ordinary people
Many of the social problems we have today could be dramatically improved if we focus on eliminating extreme inequality in Australia
Peace and Non-Violence
We are committed to peaceful and non-violent solutions and to a foreign policy based on dialogue, diplomacy and cooperation
ABOUT HORNSBY GREENS
Hornsby Greens is a local group of Greens NSW and the Australian Greens. Our members generally live in the Hornsby local government area in the northwest of Sydney. The Australian Greens are a political party based on four key principles: ecological sustainability, grassroots democracy, social justice and peace and non-violence.
We have the courage to put people and our future first. That means along with meaningful and smart solutions to ensure future generations of Australians have clean air, clean water and clean soil, the Greens are also working in many other areas to champion integrity, decency and fairness. The Greens represent constituents and speak on behalf of those who wouldn’t otherwise get much of a say inside parliament: children, refugees, students, individuals and families living in poverty and, of course, our natural environment.
ISSUES WE CARE ABOUT
Hornsby Greens actively campaigns on renewable energy, housing affordability, public transport, public education and preserving green spaces, while Greens NSW has altogether over 50 separate policies.
We usually meet on the second Monday of each month at the Hornsby Central Library, 28-44 George St (entrance in Hunter Lane) in Hornsby. Please get in touch or check our Facebook for upcoming meetings. During the 2020-2021 pandemic we are meeting online.

Acknowledgement of Country
Hornsby Greens acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land, in particular the Dharug and Gu-ring-gai peoples. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders belong to the oldest continuous living culture in the world and their sovereignty was never ceded. Our group strives to follow the footsteps left by thousands of generations of caretakers, whose spiritual relationship to the land and sustainable way of life was always at the core of everything they did.
