The European Green Party manifesto functions as a basis to further the common Green agenda during European Parliament election campaigns. It is adopted every five years by our Members Parties.
The manifesto for the 2014 European Parliament Elections
The process involved a Working Group, comprised of delegates from EGP Member Parties from the EU, and an Editorial Group consisting of a smaller number of participants – the Editorial Group prepared drafts for discussion by the Working Group. Both groups met on a regular basis, and information flew constantly in both directions. Further on in the process, at an advanced drafting phase, the manifesto was presented to the EGP Council. Afterwards, it was voted on and adopted by the EGP Electoral Congress.
* Please note, the Irish Green Party / Comhaontas Glas was unable to agree to, and Alternattiva Demokratika registered their objection to the following: “Sexual and reproductive rights are essential elements of human dignity. We Greens defend the right of self-determination over our own bodies.

Common Manifesto 2014
The process of drafting a Common Manifesto for the European Elections 2014 started in April 2013. A preliminary version of the Manifesto was presented and discussed at the EGP Council in November 2013; the final version of the Common Manifesto was unanimously adopted by delegates at the EGP Electoral Congress in February 2014.
For the European Elections in 1999 the European Green Party (then still the European Federation of Green Parties) - for the first time - set up a mechanism for the creation of a common Green manifesto, a common Green vision by and for all Green member parties. Together with a Common Campaign (first used in the European Elections in 2004) the Common Manifesto is a cornerstone of the European Green’s effort in uniting and strengthening the efforts of all its EU member parties, to fight for a Greener and more democratic Europe.
