Hey, it's okay not to be okay all the time.
Admitting something like that can be very difficult. Nevertheless, it applies to everyone: no one is in top shape all the time. Groen wants everyone to have every opportunity to live a healthy and happy life. Because that's what we do it all for, right?
Good and affordable care will thus become a basic right for everyone. Do you have a broken leg or a psychological problem? In both cases you deserve fast and affordable help. Do you need a general practitioner, a dentist or a psychologist? You can go everywhere without delay. You don't have to be on a waiting list for months or pay sky-high bills.
And prevention really is better than cure. So investing in that is important. How? We make healthy living easy and logical. We provide more nature in your neighbourhood. You can relax in it and enjoy clean air. You should not inhale pollutants. Fruit and vegetables are getting cheaper. We provide more and safer cycling and walking paths so that you can move around safely and with gusto. The less we get sick, the better. For ourselves and for our wallet.
The well-being and development of our children are also paramount. After all, they are our future. In affordable schools with green playgrounds and a great group of motivated teachers, all children can fulfil all their dreams. We provide reliable and warm childcare in the neighbourhood for the little ones. We provide more chaperones, so that every child receives the care it deserves.
And when you grow up, you deserve a healthy career and enough leave to care. That way, we automatically reduce burnouts. Even after your career, society will not let you down. You will receive a fair pension. Even if you worked part-time to take care of someone or because you were sick yourself. The elderly continue to live at home as long as possible with all the necessary help. Is that no longer possible? Then there is an affordable and nice residential care home nearby. You deserve care, dignity and respect at every stage of your life. And the people who make that happen - professionally or as carers - deserve sufficient time and a wage according to their value.
Groen focuses on well-being and doing better, rather than growth and always more. Feeling good about yourself: that will be the measure of happiness. Not the points of the stock market or the billions in profits of a few multinationals.
