What we believe

The Greens believe in a society where equity, diversity and sustainability are essential qualities.

The Greens have made Yarra the most progressive local government in Australia. We have strong social and environmental policies, we are financially rigorous and have a strong record of working co-operatively with residents and businesses to develop innovative and practical policies.

What we do

We have three elected councillors in the City of Yarra:

  • Sam Gaylard (Nicholls Ward)
  • Amanda Stone (Langridge Ward)
  • Misha Coleman (Melba Ward)
