Greens and the Left Party of the Future (Turkish: Yeşiller ve Sol Gelecek Partisi, YSGP) is a left-libertarian and green party in Turkey. It was founded on 25 November 2012 as a merger of the Greens and the Equality and Democracy Party.

Prominent members include Murat Belge, left-liberal political author and columnist for Taraf; Kutluğ Ataman, filmmaker and contemporary artist; and Ufuk Uras, former Istanbul deputy and president of the Freedom and Solidarity Party.
