In Belgium, they both have almost the same ideas. They want to stop nuclear power plants in 2025 and change to renewable energy , promote public transport, affordable health care for everyone,...
Is the difference where you live between socialists and the green party bigger or not?
Sometimes I tend to believe they're the same (but they are not). What is the greatest difference between both ideologies?
Edit: I don't really know how to make my question stackexchange proof, but i'll give it another try:
Socialism is about social justice, solidarity and equality and ecologism is about sustainable living. They're not really the same thing. One can be rich and the other not, they're not equal as to socialism, but maybe they have a sustainable way of living their lives.
On the other hand, the parties in Belgium who represent these ideologies have (almost) the same ideas. For me that's strange. They have another goal, but the same plans and ideas.
Do the socialists and greens in other countries (in the EU) have more diverse proposals or aren't there currently sensible differences between european socialist and green parties?
I'm member of the Flemish Green party "Groen" in Belgium. Both the Flemish socialists and French speaking socialist party in Wallonnia are related to numerous scandals related to mandates and attendance fees and other things. I do not want to be a member of such a movement. Other than that, I struggle to explain to people why I'm not a member of the socialist party instead of the green party.
