Our charter was adopted by consensus at the first Global Greens Congress in Canberra, Australia in 2001.  It draws upon the charters and constitutions of Green parties around the world, and some ideas from the Earth Charter and from the First Planetary Gathering of Greens at Rio in 1992. Over two years in the making, the original 2001 version went through numerous revisions as comments and amendments were incorporated. In Canberra, hundreds of more amendments were proposed.  Debates and negotiations culminated on the final afternoon of the Congress in a riveting session where contentious clauses were decided one by one on the floor.  The finished Charter was adopted by acclamation, a truly momentous accomplishment.
