About us

Partido Kalikasan (Philippine Green Party) is a national Green Party in the Philippines dedicated to Ecological Integrity, Social Justice, National Solidarity & Active Non-Violence (ANV), Participatory Democracy and Personal Integrity.

As of October 2008, we are composed of ten (10) local autonomous green movements who believe in the above principles and have banded together as local partido kalikasan organizations. These local Partido Kalikasan organizations are operating in the following ecosystems:

  • Macalajar Bay in Northern Mindanao

Ecological Integrity

  • Development must always be in harmony with nature
  • Respect the integrity of creation in the biological, ethical and spiritual sense

Social Justice

  • Promote equity in the enjoyment of the earth’s resources

National Solidarity and Active Non-violence

  • Promote solidarity through respect for the diversity of cultures and the practice of active non-violence
  • Work with other green movements at the national and global levels

Participatory Democracy

  • As caretakers of the earth, uphold environment as a key political agenda and participate responsibly at the most effective levels of decision making

Personal Integrity

  • Exert effort to continue learning and living an ecological life style.

Towards the end of December 2003 in Marikina City; we convened our 1st National Assembly where we adopted our Constitution and By-Laws and appointed provincial/regional coordinators to start the formation of local Partido Kalikasan organizations.

By October 2007, leaders of the party set-up the Kalikasan Institute (a.k.a. Partido Kalikasan Institute Inc.) as a support organization for the party.

By October 2008, young party leaders formed KALIKAS (Kabataan para sa Kalikasan or Youth for Nature) as the youth wing of the party.
