In 1990, environmental activists founded the GRÜNE LIGA (transl. = green league) - Network of Ecological Movements. The GRÜNE LIGA has its roots in the ecclesiastical environmental and peace groups, urban ecology groups as well as many local nature and environment protection initiatives of the GDR. The GRÜNE LIGA is a recognized nature and environmental protection association in Germany.The limits of growth have been pointed out for decades yet, the orientation towards growth of our industrial society continues unabated. When formulating its principles in the early 1990s, the GRÜNE LIGA identified these social and ecological problems and has been leading the discourse on these issues ever since.
For us, protecting nature goes beyond mere conservation of nature and the environment. When we talk about ecology, we also include discussions about economic and financial structures, actively promote implementing and living utopias and address social issues while working for peace.
