Greens are people who support some or all of goals of a Green Party without necessarily working with or voting for that or any party. Most of them consider themselves to be part at least of a global Green movement. A potentially basis of unity for Greens could be Green values (as made explicit in the Four Pillars and other documents), but even these aren't shared by all people who see themself as Greens.

Historically, "being green" developed as an political identity together with the blooming of the peace movement, the ecology movement and the feminist movement in the late 1970s, the time the first green parties on a local level were founded.
