Environmental Group VS ‘Green’ Political Parties
High concern for environment among public; decreasing trend
Membership: some overlap
Concern inadequately reflected in politics
o Should be cross-class, non partisan
Environmental groups can influence politics of all parties
o Campaigning, action, lobbying
o Varied interests/goals, inconsistent, unstructured
It is high but it has had a decreasing trend which showed up during
the Global Economic Crisis. When we talk about environmental groups
and politics, we don’t see a cross over between the membership of
those who have high concern for the environment and political parties.
Environmental issues should be cross-class and not about just one
political party. The environment affects everyone. These groups can
shape politics. Rarely politicians will make decisions when there is
backing of the majority of the public.
Environmental Movement
No “one” environmental movement
o Highlights dissatisfaction on many fronts
o Divides and brings people together
o Grass roots movement
Varied political approaches

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
