DescriptionThe Scottish Green Party was formed (as the Scottish Ecology Party) in 1979. In these early years it was part of the UK wide Ecology Party,which had been formed in 1974. In 1986 the Ecology Party became the Green Party.

Throughout the 1980s the Scottish Party developed its own campaigns and policy programme, culminating in the landmark programme and vision, "Towards a Green Scotland" in 1990. In the late 1980s the Scottish Green Party also began to have a marked impact in elections. This reached an early peak in the 1989 European elections, where the party achieved 7.5% over all of Scotland and over 10% in Lothian. Only the UK's adherence to first-past-the-post voting prevented Scottish Green MEPs joining other Green MEPs in the European Parliament.

In 1990 the Scottish Green Party became a separate party from the party in England and Wales (Northern Ireland also took this route later). The separation was entirely amicable, as part of the green commitment to
decentralisation and we still share campaigns and ideas as part of the Green islands network.
