Quality health care

Care is about people, not numbers.

Imagine … Everyone gets the care needed. Home care workers, nurses and social workers have time and attention for those who need it. The stopwatch no longer rules care. GroenLinks wants caring to be about people and not about the numbers.

More work

Make way for a sustainable and innovative economy.

GroenLinks wants to invest in jobs, work shared more fairly, and more rights for flex-workers.

Welfare/social security
flexible workers
Child care
Minimum wage
Dismissal (firing) rights
participation Law
Free movement of workers
Combine work and care

Clean energy

Sun and wind are the future.

The Netherlands is enormously behind when it comes to clean energy. GroenLinks is clear: we will invest only in renewable forms of energy. That is why we say no to unreliable gas, nuclear, coal and shale gas.

The climate is changing on our planet and that is because of our human actions, as almost all scientists agree. The effects of global warming are large and they are unfolding faster than expected. GroenLinks wants to work in the Netherlands, in Europe and in the world to do everything possible to halt global warming.


We have a responsibility to provide protection for refugees.

In 2015about one million people fled to Europe from war, violence and persecution. We have a shared responsibility to provide people protection.
