GroenLinks is the Green party in Netherlands. Founded in 1989 by a merger of four left-wing parties, our name translates as GreenLeft.

GroenLinks is geared towards a better society: With respect for the environment and human rights, in promotion of more freedom and security for all, working to reduce pollution and inequality. We are convinced that the Netherlands and Europe can do better: greener, more caring and more relaxed.
