  European Greens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
European Greens (or the European Green Party) is the name of the European Green Party, a political party at European level.
The first goal of the newly founded European Greens was the election campaign for the European Parliament in June, 2004 (see European Parliament Election 2004), which was the first election campaign in Europe that featured similar motifs and slogans in all EU countries.
Critics have suggested that the European Greens do not yet amount to a single party: in particular the different national components have a widely different approach to the European Union ranging from strong eurofederalist forces to eurosceptics.
