The Greens–Green Alternative (Catalan: Els Verds–Alternativa Verda, EV–AV) is a political party based in Catalonia, founded in September 1999 by former members of The Greens–Ecologist Confederation of Catalonia (EV–CEC),[1][2] after the party had split in March 1998 over the type of relationship to establish with the newly-autonomous Initiative for Catalonia (IC).[3][4]

In January 2015, EV–AV joined the "Constituent Call" platform promoted by the Popular Unity Candidacy (CUP),[5][6] though for the 2015 Catalan regional election they gave support to the Junts pel Sí candidacy.[7] Ahead of the 2017 Catalan regional election the party had several of its members integrated within Together for Catalonia (JxCat)'s lists,[8][9] granting its support to JxCat in subsequent elections as well.[10] On 28 May 2019, party member Josep Puig entered Parliament replacing Josep Rull as a result of the latter's resignation to become a member of the Congress of Deputies.[11]
