In the negotiations on the new basic program, the Greens' leadership has circumvented a particularly delicate cliff.

Compromise formulation for 1.5-degree target

After the kick-off on Friday, the Greens got deep into the substantive debate on Saturday - it started with their core topic of environmental and climate protection. In the run-up to the meeting, members of the Fridays for Future climate movement had criticized the federal board's draft for the new basic program as not being too ambitious.

A motion that was supposed to be voted on called for the so-called 1.5-degree target to be made the “standard” of green policy, that is, the aim of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees compared to the pre-industrial era. But that is "practically impossible to achieve without social and economic upheavals," said Anders Levermann from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research to the delegates. The compromise now states that it is “necessary to get on the 1.5 degree path”.

Habeck warned Baerbock, like the day before, that everyone must be taken along when it comes to change. Many people no longer find their way around accelerated reality, he said. “And the more fragile life, the more injured and vulnerable it is, the more changes are perceived as a threat. Change also means "loss or the fear of loss" - specifically, he named, for example, "the car maker who fears she will be on the street in a few years" and the "coal worker whose opencast mine is closing".

The Greens have set themselves the declared goal of replacing the Union as the leading force. In surveys, they are currently at around 18 to 20 percent, well behind the CDU and CSU, which together come to 35 to 37 percent.

The digital federal party congress is neither about the question of the candidacy for chancellor nor the election program, but about the fourth basic program of the Greens in their 40-year party history.
