In 1979, Daniel Brélaz became the world's first green member of a national parliament (in Switzerland).

Greens believe that these issues are inherently related to one another as a foundation for world peace. Green party platforms typically embrace social-democratic economic policies and forming coalitions with other left-wing parties.

Green parties exist in nearly 90 countries around the world; many are members of Global Greens.
