The Australian Greens is a green political party in Australia founded in 1992. Right now, they are the third-biggest political party in Australia, based on how many votes they got in the 2019 federal election. The leader right now is Adam Bandt. Nine members of the Senate and one member of the House of Representatives are a part of the Greens.

Bob Brown lead the party in federal parliament from 2005 to 2012. In 2010 Adam Bandt was elected to the seat of Melbourne and became one of several crossbenchers providing support to the Gillard Labor minority government.

The Greens also discuss other issues than the environment, such as equality, human rights, peace and non-violence.
