The Environmental Movement is a very diverse social movement characterised by relatively loose organisations of activists involving people in local activity around global environmental and natural issues, organised on a transnational basis and promoting a holistic, global and ethical world-view emphasising preservation of nature and restraint on economic development.
Green issues were no longer the preserve of a few visionaries or dedicated animal lovers, but began to engage the consciousness of millions in the West, who had achieved development but now feared the excessive cost.
The issues raised by the Green Movement were and remain genuine issues of life and death for humanity; the problems were posed to humanity for the first time in the early 1960s as a result of the gigantic expansion brought about by the post-war boom.

 An Caorthann - Lúnasa '94: Green movement, Green Party
It is common for a green party to talk about "the green movement" as something which the party is involved in, but is larger than the party.
Secondly, the movement has no overall leadership: it cannot be decapitated, there is no-one to be bought off, there is no structure to be sucked into the system, there is no committee to degenerate into an endless wrangle while the movement collapses.
The green movement, then, is a way of looking at a series of struggles; and the people who are involved in them do not have to see themselves as being a green movement.

 S/R 14: The Crisis in Green Politics, Direct Democracy, and the Future of the Green Party Movement in the United States
The Ralph Nader Green Presidential campaign, as contradictory as it was in many respects, represented a major stage in the advance of the Green Party Movement in the United States.
A movement in which a high proportion of its membership has spent an inordinate amount of time wrapped up in utopian ideals and pursuits often finds itself unwilling or unable to face harsh realities--particularly if those realities constantly reveal glaring shortcomings in its own internal functioning and makeup.
I believe that the Green movement has reached a critical point in its own process of self-definition--the verdict is not fully in yet, but there are already a number of warning lights flashing.

The great scope and strength of the environmental movement was attained in areas that are especially unsafe ecologically in the industrialized oblasts of Russia: the Volga basin, the Urals, Lake Baikal, the Aral Sea and the Aral Sea region.
The green movement in Russia is a new factor on the social-political scene.
This massive alternative movement has a significant influence in these regions, so far as considering that the indissoluble geographic, historical, cultural and ecological connections, are aspects of national rebirth.

 10/11/2005 -- 'Building Green' Movement on Rise in Georgia
City Hall's "green roof" is one of dozens of projects in Atlanta that are part of the "building green" movement that proponents hope will take root in cities across the country.
Supporters say the concept of building green has recently gained momentum because of increased concerns about rising energy costs and the creation of a standardized system that certifies buildings as environmentally responsible.
Green buildings use 30 percent less energy than traditional buildings with methods such as incorporating insulation and windows that help with heating and cooling, said Rick Fedrizzi, president of the U.S. Green Building Council.
