The Green Party in government is delivering for the climate, our communities, and equality. The time is now for urgent action. We have pushed climate action and a just transition not only to the top of the agenda, but to the heart of everything we do in government.
The Green Party has led the way in climate politics in Ireland for over 40 years. As a political party we are unique in having the expertise and experience to implement the changes Ireland needs in order to respond to and mitigate climate change with just transition at the core. In Government, we are investing in a greener Ireland for our children.
The Green Party wants to ensure a thriving Ireland for every community through affordable housing, good public transport networks, a flourishing culture industry and reinvigorating our towns and villages.
The Green Party stands for an equal and just society that upholds rights and values diversity. We believe that protections for migrants, reproductive rights and gender recognition are all needed to ensure that everyone is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
Collaboration and action
As a modern, progressive party, we believe that the politics of collaboration and action are key to making impact. The time has passed for old-school politics of one-upmanship. In order to tackle the climate and biodiversity crises, we must work across the political spectrum, bringing people with us all the time - uniting, collaborating and making sure that there is never a 'them' and 'us' when it comes to climate action. We are all in this together.
