Event: Leading the Change that Europe Needs 

Join our three fantastic European candidates as they set out their Green vision for Europe: Ciarán Cuffe for Dublin, Saoirse McHugh for Midlands North West, and Grace O’Sullivan for Ireland South. Join in the discussion with special guests Ska Keller MEP – the European Greens’ leading candidate in the forthcoming elections, and Mar Garcia, General Secretary of the European Green Party. Find out how the Greens in the European Parliament are working for you, and why we need more Green voices leading the change that Europe needs.

Time and Location: 18:30 on Friday 15th February, Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill, Galway.

Format and Duration:

One hour moderated panel discussion in three 20 minute parts.

  • Part one: the #GreenWave – why are voters turning to the Green Party across Europe in ever-increasing numbers? What is unique about our platform that attracts support? What are the major issues to which the Greens are proposing clear solutions?
  • Part two: Our three European candidates speak about their individual platforms – what are their three priorities for their respective constituencies? What are Ireland’s major issues where solutions are best conceived at European level? Why do Irish citizens need Greens back in the European Parliament?
  • Part three: What are the priorities of the European Green Party in the forthcoming 2019-2024 parliament? What are the major issues the EGP are putting front and centre in this election, and how does that relate to Ireland? What are the legislative priorities for our three candidates if elected to the EP in May?
