In 1990, environmental movements founded the GRÜNE LIGA – Network of Ecological Movements. The GRÜNE LIGA has its roots in ecclesiastical environmental and peace groups, urban ecology groups and many local nature and environmental protection initiatives in the GDR. In the meantime, the GRÜNE LIGA is a recognized nationwide association for nature and environmental protection.
The limits of growth have been demonstrated for decades, and yet the growth orientation of the industrial society remains unbroken. When formulating its principles in the early 1990s, the Green Liga identified these social and environmental problems and has been leading the discourse on these issues ever since. For us, the work of classic nature and environmental protection does not stop. For the GRÜNE LIGA, ecology also means dealing with economic and financial structures and living alternatives, it also means addressing social issues and committing to peace.
Our motto is: to have visions – to network – to stimulate action.
