Green Horizon was launched in 2003 to provide extensive coverage of the global political movements for ecological responsibility and expanded democracy. We publish under the auspices of the Green Horizon Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in the state of Maine (all donations are therefore tax deductible).

The Ten Key Values of the Greens
Personal and Social Responsibility
Respect for Diversity
Sustainability / Thinking to the Seventh Generation
We salute our readers and writers, many of whom are active in the crucial work of “greening” our society. We thank them for their courage, commitment, talent, and for the vision that started them on the pathway of Green leadership. We encourage them to share their stories, discuss their projects, and relate their accomplishments through the hard-copy of Green Horizon Magazine or via this web site.
We believe that each person has within her or himself the spark of self-agency – each one is capable of taking a lead at some point and in some way. One important hallmark of great leadership is the will and the ability of a leader to enable others to be leaders – to grow leadership! Many Greens, we have come to realize, are ambivalent about leaders and leadership. It has been, and is, a considerable handicap to the flowering of the Green Movement and Green Party. By fully sharing our hopes, doubts, fears, triumphs, and convictions we can deepen, expand, and develop the understanding and quality of Green leadership.
Our stance towards political parties is non-partisan
Unlike Green Pages, for example (which is an organ of the Green Party), we are an independent and non-partisan journal. We’re published under the auspices of the Green Horizon Foundation, an entity to which tax deductible donations can be made under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code.
But we are concerned that the electoral system in the United States, which is dominated by the Democratic and Republican parties, is not open, not accountable to the people. It is not fully democratic and is not responsible to the commonwealth of the United States or to the planet as a whole. The two major parties are similar in their most fundamental policies and they work together to deny access to other voices, other parties, across the spectrum of political ideas, programs, policies, and platforms. We do believe that “more voices and more choices” would benefit the American electorate.
