Blue-Green Alliance

A Blue-Green Alliance describes an alliance between political parties and other organizations. It has two radically different meanings.

In the context of United Kingdom politics it refers to an alliance between the Conservative Party and ecologists or environmentalists such as those found in the Green Party. This alliance occurs as a result of the Conservative view that market economics help preserve the environment and a tendency toward Deep England views of pastoralism.

In the context of the politics of the United States it refers to an alliance of environmentalists of the Green Party and blue-collar labor activists. The core issue of this alliance is opposition to globalization and to free trade, and it was significant in the candidacy of Ralph Nader in the 2000 Presidential election.
